Oil on Canvas Board
For this first one I was trying an experiment. Think of this one as a benchmark. I had sketched it a few times to block out a rough composition but I wanted to paint it raw, loose and from memory. With the trees, I got so into the pattern of how to paint them that I forgot what it was like to see them for the first time. This is a mess but I think there are some good things here that I will need later.
