Pine 2 - A Work in Progress

It is another cold day -3F (-19.4C) with the wind chill making it feel like -9F (-22.8C), but then that is to be expected in February.

I felt like doodling with a brush and when I pulled out my palette I had a dark mixture of colour on my palette and after adding a little water I used this paint by running down a line of paint for a tree trunk.

Next I added some needles onto the trunk to turn it into a pine tree. It still needs some dead branches and a little more shading.

Rocks were added below the tree to ground it and a few ripples into the water.

I will post this painting at a later date once I have decided what colour to use for the background to indicate the time of day.
