Tree Study 9

Tree Study 9, 6 x 8 in.

Another small study.....this time, small, skinny oaks grouped together like so many here in Central Texas. These were part of a much, much larger group, and on a hillside. I began to put the rest in, and took out what I'd started--it took on a bit of a watercolor look because of it all.

I like this one so much. Very strong brushwork but soft colors- really pleasing to the eye. This has been a great series to learn by. I am going to print them out and save them. I need to work on my tree ability too! Thanks for sharing.

This painting really caught my eye, so I've been sitting here catching up on your posts about the workshop. Fun posts!

Hi Julie,

I love the looseness of this one -- it's almost beyond landscape and into essence. Beautiful.
