"A Patch Of Sun" ©

This morning rain pattered on the roof as I lay under the covers hiding from the morning chill. My first thought was of the scheduled paint out and that the rain was sure to detour artists from coming. Three of us were strong willed and didn't let the weather keep us home. As we painted the sun played peek a boo all morning long. We were able to chose between painting the cloud dimmed landscape or "A Patch Of Sun".

Really nice..
Your trees have such great shapes. The trunks, branches and the colors of the leaf masses are perfect!
Wish I could do that!!

You can and do. Thanks Marian, the only thing missing that day was you. Next month is Castaic Lake, hope you can make it. I did tweak this piece since posting, firming up the tree trunks, placing shadows under the trees in patterns and adjusting the values on the path. It's a nice study now for a larger piece now, so I can quit. See you soon....
