Large Oak near Edisto
I am employing the things that I recently learned from my new DVD and feel that there is a solidity in this painting that wasn't there before. I enjoyed painting this scene. Each year we travel to Edisto Beach for the day with a picnic lunch and walk the beach with our dogs. On our way home we pass this marvelous old oak tree. I love the majestic oaks of the South. I also am learning something else about color. I added Permanent Green Light and I like the brilliant yellow green that I am able to mix. That combination helped to change this painting into exactly what I was looking for. One other thing....when you paint....sit back and just enjoy the process from the initial layout to the last stroke put down.
