I had decided in January that for me, this is the 'Year of the Tree'. I'm spending time sketching and painting trees.
This was painted with blue, yellow and that lovely shale color. No green. For me, a palette for trees that excludes green better captures what I see when I look at the tree. Without all that crazy over the top greenness that can plague a painting. Well, bad greens have plagued my paintings. Those are the ones I don't share with you.
