Birch Tree in Fall


8 X 10 oil on Pastelboard.

I was at lunch the other day and I saw a birch tree at Bull Creek. It was at the end of of its cycle for changing it colors for the fall and it was beaming with the most amazing yellow leaves. I couldn’t help myself, I had to take a photo of it and when I got home later that evening I thought it would make a great study in color. I have use a broken color technique to emphasize the color aspect of the painting. 8 X 10 oil on Pastelboard.
