12 x 9 in., oil on panel
Some of the most fun I had painting last week at KOPE came while doing this piece. I realize not everyone gets as excited as I do about trees.....but I really get a little geeked up on painting them. :)
I loved playing up the verticals (diagonals here, really) in the shadows and then up into the tree foliage. The shadows provided more entertainment for me, and I love an excuse to use darks in a painting. So it was a virtual trifecta of fun.....and it sold during the Saturday night reception!
