"Forest Sky Light" was inspired by looking up at trees near my home in the Peak District. Sunlight plays through beautiful leaves revealing a clear sky beyond the branches. This is a peaceful, calming painting, with summery tones of pink and rich greens. An original artwork by Amanda Horvath, this painting has been created with high quality acrylic paints on deep edged canvas. I begin with observation of the place making notes and taking photographs to work from in the studio. From these beginnings I work intuitively, painting some base layers with a brush and then impasto techniques layer on layer applied with a palette knife. Harnessing optical mixing techniques employed by the impressionists and some of the methods of the old masters such as scumbling and glazing. I continue working until the painting reaches a natural conclusion. The result is a contemporary painting, which lies somewhere between abstraction and realism. The painting continues round the sides, a frame is not needed and it is ready to hang.
