Fort Wetherill morning-sold



Oil on panel, 8" x 10"
Same spot, about 90 minutes later. The brown area in the front is the tops of trees. I tried painting some skinny trunks and branches but they looked really clunky, so I ended up using my palette knife to scrape/ blend them and realized the scratchy texture of the knife on the panel was perfect.
