Well this isn't an exact copy of Bob's painting, I changed the composition a bit to fit the shape of the canvas and added some elements. It's quite a big canvas, 60x60 cm instead of my usual 40x50, so it was much more work to cover it all up. It's so difficult to get sap green highlights to show, probably because sap green is so transparent, so I really worked hard to get it to show on the cavas and that all the trees are individuals instead if one big mass. I put a stream in there because I think it fits nicely into the theme. I first planned to just put in the path on the left, but then there was a perfect place for another one on the right so I put it in also. So it was quite fun to paint this one and I'm satisfied with the result.
Wow, the mss as in tree is awesome. A lot of character in the bark and in the branches!
Really nice! LOVE that big tree - and terrific little stream!
Pardon - T9 on the phone. I meant to say "the mss as in tree" = " The main tree"
