Nicholas Anokhin is one of the artists I admire very much. Just looking at his painting I wonder into his world. His rich application of color, texture…well… just about everything is what I like to see in paintings. When I was painting this image, I thought about the way he painted the oak tree and how successfully he captured the appearance of the tree bark. So I applied a little texture to my tree too. I had a fun.
