8"x 10" oil on canvas. Available.
I love trees and this is one I've always wanted to paint. This spring before the leaves appear and late afternoon seemed the perfect time to capture it's majesty. I just started by blocking in color and working the shapes and values (seen in the lower photo), making many small adjustments in the colors as the piece progressed. I kept in mind the play between darks and lights during the entire process, which was the inspiration for this little landscape. The time to complete it was about five hours. I 'm pretty excited because it is one of those break- through pieces that happens every so often and you think "wow, it looks close to want I was trying for!" Good to see some pay off for hard work.
