Watching a Breeze Unfold #2

TM9099 Breezy Afternoons 36×60 oil on panel

Breezy Afternoons continues my exploration of the effects of wind on trees – now a quickly developing series.  The city planted some young trees in front of Fenway Studios, and I am fortunate to have one in front of my studio. For two years I’ve had the pleasure of watching my tree grow, and worrying for its health in high winds. Watching the branches toss and sway may have contributed to this painting, which continues the theme of movement. Good luck little tree. Enjoy. Details below.

Technical painting notes: I used a soft rubber roller for much of the paint application, using a finer brush for the details of stems and leaves, and alternating it all with layers of transparent glaze.
