I enjoy experimenting with complimentary colours and one of the aims of this painting was to create an effective image using different shades of red and green. The particular shades of colour I was using made me think of apples, hence the apple tree - albeit a rather loose, abstract interpretation of one. The slightly rounded dabs of paint underneath the tree’s canopy represent the ripe apples ready to fall from the tree.
It was a bit of a challenge to create depth using such a limited palette but I think, as the background colours are blended fairly smoothly, this allows the more painterly rendered tree to stand out.
The branches spread across to one side to give the effect that the tree is being blown by the wind.
