Trees of Gold

Title: Trees of Gold
Size: 20 x 24
Medium: Oil on gallery wrapped canvas
check out eBay auction tonight for purchase
This painting has a pthalo blue underpainting and many layers of oils with palette knife were dragged and delicately layered for trunks and leaves. The trunks have several layers of colors: purples and greys followed by golden and white highlights. Even though cadmium red is very expensive, I couldn't resist using it in the canopy of fall leaves because it is the perfect shade for fall.
Today was the first day of school and Fall is just around the corner. I LOVE the turning of the trees. Virginia is especially beautiful in the Fall because of all the trees.
