A tree from Vasona Park - Plein Air Painting

Things have been crazy lately but I did manage to squeeze in some time for a Plein Air workshop today with Kristen Olsen at Vasona Park, Los Gatos. It was an interesting expereience for me, trying to let go of my studio painting habits and focus on values, composition. Here is a collage with pics that I took to document my progress.

Here is the finished painting.

It took about 3 hours to get to this stage. I had to make a hard stop to avoid overworking. Looking forward to more painting in the open soon :)
