Notes From My Tree Journal
Today was my first day out on location for my annual yard series. It kicks off my plein air season. I paint from September - April each year on location. I paint from May-August in my air conditioned studio. I've been painting this yard series for a long time. My dog Henry enjoys it too. He roots around in the weeds and snoozes while I paint.
My yard offers numerous trees to study including hardwoods and pines. Late afternoon offers the best light. I walk down the path through the woods and look at the trees and their limbs. The leaves are starting to come off, offering wonderful trunks for future study.
