painting in progress titled fallen in winter


"Fallen in Winter"
Oil - 24 x 32
This piece has become a good "plein air diary" entry. I spent the first couple sessions with the placement of shapes and in getting to know this subject. I finally decided that it was a cloudy-day painting, and got a couple more sessions in developing the focal area of the broken trunk. Then the remainder of winter became mostly sunny with snow, or clouds with rain. Ah flexibility ... this piece is now a holdover for next winter.
