Studying A Tree Trunk

8x10 inches
acrylic on Source Tek panel

Notes From my Tree Journal

This was a great tree to study. It is growing in the woods at Fair Oaks in Evinston. What wonderful character. It has many stories to tell.

With such strong imagery, I found it a challenge to make the background fit without giving it much notice. I would like to do this one again. It was very challenging.

  1. That's beautiful. I am struck by the background and how nicely it compliments the trunk.

    I hope you don't mind me asking, but I'm curious to ask how many hours you'd estimate a challenging painting like this of this size would take you?

    If you paint it again, would you paint it the same size, or would you paint it on a larger canvas?

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. It took me about two hours to do this study. I would like to do it again in a larger square format as I still have some issues to work out with it.
    Thanks so much for your nice comments Kate.
