Rose Garden Tree - 3
This oak tree in the Rose Garden evidently intrigues me well enough to paint it a third time. This is a 30" x 40" oil on canvas and was done in the studio from a photo taken earlier in the week. (Hurray for air conditioning!) It took two days of painting and erasing before I was happy with the initial sketch. And only because Tilly and I had Friday off from pet therapy did I have time to work on it.
I'm actually on the hunt for interesting trees around Houston. If y'all have any favorites or recommendations, please let me know.
