Summer Oaks

Summer Oaks, 6 x 6

My early painting of some beautiful pine trees from Saturday never did get finished......the light changes so quickly at 7 & 8 am that I didn't keep up that morning, so I'll use it as a study later, but am posting one from later that day.  We had the hardest time finding a shady spot to paint for this one, and I didn't get very clever with the composition here (there were some highly mobile cows that wandered in and out of this painting, finally to be left out entirely).  I used a smaller board because of my morning experience of not finishing, thus the 6 x 6.

Leslie is so right - you are really understanding the anatomy of trees!!
