While I’m on a tree painting spree I decided to try this one. I didn’t under paint with black gesso, but ended up with a somewhat similar look. It just needs a fairy 🧚‍♀️
16x20, Gamblin oils.



Yes it does need a fairy! Beautiful and looks like an enchanted forest!

Great big tree! Love it.

Great job! I would not have know you did not do the gesso underpainting. Looks like your did.

Thanks to all for your kind comments! I used a mixture of black and phalo blue to darken the canvas in the upper corners and bottom third. That gave the water the blue gray tint.
