Update on the trees

 

trees_01Here are three snapshots showing progress to the final, where none of the wood remains visible, as in the previous landscapes. I also decided against the golden leaves; as I worked the snow the monochrome won. I may do another, more autumnal, with vibrant leaves. Also, these weathered cedar shingles are a bit tricky to work on, as they’re pretty heavily textured. The grain fights painting in detail, so one of my cradled (or uncradled) boards salvaged from wine boxes or drawer bottoms would be better suited to that kind of detail work.
