Tree of Strength

Well, I've started to do some oil painting. This one is 9 x 12. Based on some photos taken near Cheyenne last week. I'm in the process of figuring out the feel of the paint, how to hold brushes, mixing colors etc. Its lots of fun and I have a lot to learn. I'll still be doing pastels as well. So much to paint, so little time! This particular painting would be my second landscape using oil paint. My first was a week or so ago... and will go into the "learning experience" file! LOL

14 Feet, 3 Inches

9 inch x 9 inch, pastel. Did this last night experimenting with a square format as well as using an alcohol underpainting. If the painting were a rectangle, then the edges of the painting would compete with the rectangle shapes within the painting.
