Tight realism that the artist claims are NOT from life but rather, evolve in the process of painting without preconception. She does use photo reference as a starting point but as the painting progresses the gathering gloom of the forest that gradually emerges is very much her own creation. She also does some very amazing flowers though I have to admit they don't compel me nearly so much as these depictions of the dark within the forest.
