No. 146 - Trees X


6" x 8" - Oil on Canvas Board

This was an experiment and while it may look like a joke it was really helpful. I had done nine of these when I did this one but it was not until I painted this that I really understood the basic value structure of the trees. With the details abstracted it you are able to see the underlying light and how the overall shapes work. Nothing I'm going to hang on the wall but very cool to try out.
