"Pt. Reyes-Redwood Sisters"

Tonight's painting is a study of a sequoia grove that is on the hill behind the Morgan Ranch at Pt. Reyes. I painted this on Yupo paper. It is fun to paint on Yupo, you get lots of movement and the color is bright and vibrant. But I don't have the control that I am used to having. 

When I paint foliage, it really helps me to listen to classical guitar, and mostly Gordon Rowland. There is something magical about the way he plays, and I think it has a lot to do with the quality of my brushwork. Stick with what works, right?
