12 inch X 16 inch oil on stretched canvas
This is the fourth painting I've done in my project of painting my way through Kevin MacPherson's book, "Fill Your Oil Paintings With Light and Color".
MacPherson's painting is called Sunlit Hills And Sycamores. He painted his tree branches using negative shapes by painting the clouds and sky and foliage over the branches. I tried to do that, but wasn't as successful as I'd like to be at that. Need more lessons! I'd actually like to see him do that in person, as I'm not sure how he achieved it. Mine was sort of trial and error.
I am happy with the way the painting turned out, though. I learn something new every time I do one of these. I've already started another one!
