Painting in Boston Public Garden – Red Tree

i made several excursions to the Boston Public Garden this spring
in some very cold weather at first

then the weather warmed up but the winds kicked up too
mother nature always wants in on the act of creating i guess
this is my setup after having been pelted by petals

this small sketch was the inspiration for this painting
Happy Little Tree
Happy Little Tree (acrylic, 11×14) $125

and here is how i got to the finish
all it takes is time and effort ;)
step 1 – focusing on values (light vs dark)

step 2 – WAHOO! color!
