Today I went through a stack of unfinished canvases and pulled out this painting that I had started a couple of years ago (see post on 02 October 2016) when I entered the 1st Annual Outdoor Painting Festival Cavan/Millbrook plein air competition.

Using various greens made from Hansa yellow, ultramarine blue, manganese blue, cadmium yellow lemon and raw sienna, I put the remaining leaves on the tree.

This was followed by adding some highlights using Hansa yellow, titanium white and shadows using and burnt sienna.

I added a little more of the pale green into the sunlit area behind the bench.

This original 8" x 10" acrylic painting is available for $150.00.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and enjoy the artwork. I hope you will return often.
