“Looking Up – 191412” is an original acrylic on canvas by renowned artist Maya Eventov, whose work is characterized by a vibrant interplay of light and texture. This piece invites viewers to gaze upward into a canopy of birch trees, a perspective that offers a unique and often overlooked view of the forest’s beauty.
The painting is alive with the stark contrast of the birch trees’ white bark against the various colors of the leaves and the subtle hues of the sky. Eventov’s signature palette knife technique adds a rich texture to the bark, with black markings that mimic the trees’ natural details. The leaves are depicted with a blend of warm oranges and cool whites, suggesting the changing of seasons.
Eventov masterfully captures the light filtering through the branches, creating a luminous and serene atmosphere. The background is a soft wash of colors that suggest a clear sky, providing a sense of openness and tranquility.
“Looking Up – 191412” is more than just a landscape; it is an invitation to take a moment to observe the natural world from a new angle, to appreciate the quiet grandeur of the trees reaching towards the sky. This piece would bring a sense of calm and reflection to any space, encouraging viewers to pause and consider the beauty of the simple things that often go unnoticed.
