A Beech Tree in Winter........

Here are photos of the Beech tree painting.
The piece is quite simple, but I think it is effective.
Oil on Paper

Below is a detail, hopefully showing the variation in the darks.

I spent the rest of the afternoon busily scraping dry old paint off my palette with a blade.... Hard work, but a long overdue job. I can start fresh next week.

On Monday I must get canvas and paper first. I have to post two paintings off to the US. also, so i'll not get to the studio before lunch anyway. I might spend time making up a couple of large canvases for the afternoon and leave the painting until Wednesday..I'm fishing Tuesday.....
Tomorrow I've some jobs around the house to keep me occupied...
