oil on linen on panel
Spent the day at Malibu Nature Preserve with Allied Artists for the 11th Annual Exhibit. Sold a few paintings and enjoyed the beautiful weather, talking to collectors and the other artists, but most of all I had the chance to paint and I got a little closer to reaching 30 paintings in 30 days:-) The lighting for this scene was what drew me to paint it. A really dark background with with a back area that looked really cool gray and a very lit up foreground. I managed to take one picture half-way through when I was playing around with some color choices and the top picture is where I left off at the end of my session. It still needs some finishing touches and adjustments. Back-lit trees are always a real challenge. Hope all the 30 in 30 Artists are hanging in there! Only one day to go!
