Trees

The best landscape painting I did on my weekly outdoor painting trip with Court Jones at the San Diego Mission

oil on canvas
(Court helped a little.)



I'm not good at painting the trees. So I got me a book and started practicing.3x4 oil on massonite

Study of an Elizabeth Tolley Painting
8x12 oil on massonite


Last year I did a little painting in Balboa park of a tree in watercolor. I didn't now how to mix colors back then. After doing a few studies in oil and practicing more with watercolor I painted over it. Adding more cools in the darks and bumping up the warms in the light. Before I started it had a 3 values.
