Like the other painting, this was done in 3 half hour sessions just before sunset and just before weather changed so I regard this as unfinished. You can see my burnt sienna underpainting in the bush on the left. I found the shadow over the ploughed field in the foreground particularly tricky. I love to paint trees, especially these umbrella pines.
Another lovely painting. That shadow really gives it added interest... almost an element of mystery as to what is casting it.
Wow, another beauty Day, I love this one ,the comp, the color and especially that shadow. Beautiful style and color too! Brian...hope you'll get rid of that dark ugly line on the right side of the left tree....gorgeous! Brian
Great colours here. Love the shape of those trees.
