Two trees

Oil, 8" x 8"
These two trees seemed to be doing a pas de deux at a local historic cemetery. I sat in my car and drew and painted them, as it was way too cold and windy to set up outside.

Getting the values right- the sunlit part of the trees was lighter than the blue of the sky- was challenging. The neutral winter colors were also tough. What color is that bark? It always seemed either warmer or cooler than the color I mixed. In the end you have to just look at the big picture- it's all relative, right?
