    Siberian Pine

    Since it warmed up here yesterday to about minus 15 (I guess that's about 0 for those that don't speak celsius) me, the trusty digital Pentax and the the even more trusty dog headed out for an hour or so walk in the new snow. I was thinking I might find something to try and practice in artrage or even try out the new paints and brushes my kids gave me at Christmas.

    As it turned out, my favourite photo of the day was right in the back yard - my poor twisted Charlie Brown, ugliest tree in the nursery that no one will buy Siberian Pine I picked up a couple of years ago.

    I used lots of layers, to put snow in front of and behind the pine needles and then merged and blended with the knife in a few spots to smooth things out. Quite happy with just an hour or so of work, actually

    Hey... I'm a bit fond of the Charlie Brown style Christmas tree! Great painting Lee! Nice blending with the snow on the tree! Very well done!

    Thank you everyone for your comments. It was fun to have a painting feel "finished" in about an hour for me. I usually think it needs "just this little bit right here..."

    I know exactly what you mean. I always try to overwork a drawing or painting too much. Love that little pine.
