This is the third of the Stripes series, 2 of which now have Silver Birch added.

Highkey altered

I changed the shape of the water and added some red for the focal point.

12x16 oil. Playing with high key but adding the darker tree. It definitely needed something to look at.


12x16 oil. Playing with a high key concept. I have toned down the yellowgreen in the left foreground.

                                                      oil. 12x16
I am a member of PAWA, (Plein Air Painters of Washington) and we had an enjoyable day painting indoors on a very windy, chilly day in Edmonds recently. A group paint-in, if you will. Still life in the morning and a model for the afternoon. I had to leave after the lunch time meeting unfortunately.
