On the easel

This project is on the easel at the moment. It's very interesting translating a small sketch to a very large painting. The sketch was started on site. As of ten as possible working from life is the way to go. The photo is then the backup and helps with fine detail and overall color and light. It's very interesting to see all three images together. I can see some adjustments to be made in the painting. Slim down trunk and taper width especially. I am happy with the way the light is coming through. Now to start really refining all of the shapes and bringing in more detail.
