Cove Trees - oil on panel, 12x16 inches

Cove Trees
12x16 inches, oil on panel
This is a great place to paint and I've done several paintings here. It's a somewhat secluded location, with subject matter that works from a number of different angles, and good shade. I liked the shapes of all the tree trunks against the water in the middle ground and the subtlety of the colors. I did this over two painting sessions.

Here's a fun picture where I lined up what I was painting with what is actually there. The colors are different because I'm set up in the shade, and the camera has a hard time correctly photographing the light and shade.
