Oils, with pallet knife
8 x 10
This is a tree we found in Florence as we were walking to the Pitti Palace. I loved the pealing paint on the walls and the oranges peaking through the foliage. I have kept this photograph for several years now knowing that one day I would paint it. That's one of the great things about a 30 in 30. The opportunity is there to paint all those pictures you haven't had time to or to try all those new techniques that inspired you.
