Tree and Hillside (Oil Bar Painting as of January 19, 2015)

This morning I worked on this painting again, an oil-bar landscape based on photos that I took at Appleton Farms ( Ipswich, MA) in October. If you like, you can see my photo references, posted here on January 2nd and 3rd. Today I continued to work on the branches, still trying to get them to seem to move back and forward in space. And I began to block in placement of the foliage. This is tricky because I have made changes from the photo, so I am inventing some of this. I added more shadows to the tree trunk, and made a beginning of the lines of trees in the distance.
