30 paintings in 30 days - Day 25

Today's painting had a mind of it's own. It was supposed to have a bank of clouds above the trees, like in the reference photo below, but I decided I like the simpleness of the composition without them.

I took a couple progress photos, which I thought would be fun to share with you. This canvas has a lot of paint on it! In person, it feels rich and luscious.

Here is the first pass.
