4x3" oil on primed card
The light so was beautiful this morning that I had to try to capture it. This is a giant poplar tree which I can see from my studio window. It has light grey bark which reflects the colour of the light. I quite fancied doing a series of studies of the tree at different times today but of course life got in the way!
That is something I may well try in future though.
I love painting what I can see from my window - its like plein air painting but without half the hassle - a good way to practice capturing a quickly changing light effect without getting too chilly. Monet painted his Rouen Cathederal series in this manner.
I am a realist painter, working in oils, painting landscape and still life.
