Two Trees

8 by 10 inches, oil on gessoed hardboard

It’s a rainy day – warm for February – and all our snow is melting. After several 10 and 20 minute paintings this one seemed very slow and drawn out. Doing the studies helped me iron out what I liked about the scene, and get better results out of a really crummy photo. I was aiming for more polish, and this still looks very sketchy and loose. I am getting more variety in my brushstrokes, I think, but there’s still a lot of smooshing going on.
