Julian Rix was known for his atmospheric paintings and his use of light. His work was reminiscent of the Barbizon school; however, he had his own style that included palette knife strokes and the use of pure pigments that produced stronger colors. Rix frequently painted both in his studio and outdoors. Redwoods showcases Rix’s ability to use brushstrokes to move the viewer’s gaze around the painting.
