"The Soloist" ©

"The Soloist", was painted on a whim for a student wondering about how to paint the confusion of leaves and branches in a tree.  Trees are one  of my most favorite subjects because the possibilities are endless.  To help my student I told her to think of simple big shapes, in three values to get the basic tree established.  After that it's pure fun,  pushing and pulling the light though the tree, softening edges here and there and playing with all the shapes.  After I finished the demonstration, she smiled and said, "it's so simple!"
