I did this painting as a demonstration for one of my classes. It is the view from the top of Mt. Maxwell on Salt Spring Island. Vancouver Island is off in the distance with the clouds.
The techniques I wanted to show were pouring and splattering and spritzing of the paint. I started with pouring yellow, red, then blue with each layer of color drying in between. Then I masked out the tree and splattered the part of the island behind it and the ground around the tree. Next I masked around the tree to preserve what I had done and then I splattered the tree with paint and spritzed with water. (Think Jackson Pollack only more controlled)
It is a larger painting (14×20″) and obviously took longer to do than my small ones.
