Painting No. 143 - Trees VII

6" x 8" - Oil on Canvas Board

For 143 I went back to "normal" colors and also made a couple of decisions with the composition. The lighter part behind the trees in the foreground had been one solid mass of trees. In real life they were as tall as the main trees but here I've pushed them further back so you can see the tops. To me, it's more interesting to see them from a distance so you get a greater sense of space.

Outside of the compositional decisions, this one is not great. The tree top in the foreground really stinks and it was discouraging to whiff after painting this a few times. But that is what this is all about.
