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.
