Pacific coast cypress tree in acrylic

This was painted on an 11X14 inch stretched canvass from a color reference photo in about 3 hours. I painted this scene with an art instructor from the Art Institute, Sacramento who is taking private painting lessons from me and who wants to paint in a looser manner. I will be posting our side-by-side painting progress at a later date when I get the time. My palette colors were titanium white, magenta, lemon yellow, cobalt blur, and phthalo blur. I love working with a limited color palette.

Looks great-I have particular fondness for trees for some reason! LOL Cant wait to see the side by side paintings.
Thanks for sharing

Thanks, Anne. It may take a few weeks for my student to finish his painting, but I do have some interesting photos of us working together on our cypress. I'll post those in the meantime.
