En Plein Air: Two Trees (Oil, 11 x 12)

You may have noticed that I've been painting a lot trees and woods. Yes, by doing so I have understood the importance of value and color much better, of course, especially in painting tress. Also, you must not paint tresses mindlessly in whichever way you bend the branches or their overall shapes. Recently I often went back to my computer and "read" how maters such as Isaac Levitan and so on painted trees. By comparison, I knew where my problems were. For most part of the painting I used palette knives instead of brushes.
