Park Tree in Midday Sun

This was a quick one at the park today. I'm really enjoying trying to capture these trees full of character these days.

Tree Sketch

Not the optimal outdoor painting conditions today. The temperature was nice, low 60's, but the wind was kicking up pretty good. Clouds rolled in quickly also. So I'm calling this one, an 18" x 24", a sketch as I painted for about an hour and a half on it. I simplified a lot. Just wanted to get some more tree drawing practice.

Solo Show PDF

Below you'll find a link to a PDF booklet I made for an upcoming show. I'll actually have about 10 or 12 more pieces that aren't shown here. About 45 total.

November Birch

Painted this big birch tree in the woods today. Hoping this composition will match up with my last two of the same size.

Old Cedar

Back at the state park again today. I've painted this old lakeside cedar tree before. I love trying to capture the shadows and play of light.
