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.
