There are some great trees near lake Simcoe and just around the corner I have some nice subjects.  Willows are very hard to capture as they are very subtle and full of graceful sweeping leaves, so I was struggling trying just to do it justice let alone capturing the sweet late afternoon light.  Water color techniques are also tricky as you want to get the soft curves but things harden up pretty quickly.  Oil painting is probably a better medium for this type of tree, but I wanted to make the attempt.

White Pines are so awesome in terms of scale and figure as they bend and twist in such unique ways.  I guess this is why Tom Thompson devoted his life to painting them in Northern Ontario.  When the sun sets, these pines still capture the sweet orange light as the deep blue and purple shadows creep up from the ground.  I will continue to try to explore the many shapes, light and atmosphere these great trees possess.

This is the same cedar I painted back in the winter though the shape and colors are a bit different.  Since the early fall allows me to paint on location for a longer period I can get a better representation of the tree, though I tend to like some of the liberties you take when you have to go inside and finish the painting.  The one thing that did change is the orange on the tree are the seedlings that are produced this time of year.  This is why I love revisiting subject matter in nature as it does change from day to day and season to season.

As the full moon will begin in the next night or two I wanted to capture some small paintings of dusk with a simple tree line silhouette.
