Barely Alive

Worked on this tonight--I have taken two workshops from albert handell . He uses this composition when doing his tree studies. I only wish I could plaint as well. 28 x22 inches on uart paper


  1. Hello, Tom!
    Don't be too modest! I just can answer you with your own words: "I wish I could paint us well!" Great job! Your trees are magnificent. :-)

  2. Hey Tatiana--thanks for the positive comments. I am considering doing a series of thse tree -landscapes. Al though, finding these old trees with alot of character can be a challenge
