This painting was painted as a landscape. I believe that the painting depicts a waterfall in a forest or in the woods. The color choices are interesting becasue they look as if they are showing this image in the Autumn. And to show the branches of tree and bushes they use black as an accent on top of the colors. the they use the blue and green hues to complement the reds and oranges.
they use acrylic paints on canvas for this painting. this might also be considered an abstract if you didn't know the name or the type of painting it was you probably wouldn't be able to tell it was a waterfall in the woods or forest.
