Angelina Branson | “Old Station”

This is a painting of a vertical landscape that focuses on value and contrast. The scenery is a forest trail in Old Station, CA which I've visited several times. The nature is really beautiful because it is remote so I wanted to capture the patterns of the sunlight cascading through the trees. I tried giving the light a soft appearance to contrast the dark trees in order to capture the area's warmth and majesty.
