Seagrape Tree, 8X10 Oil on Canvas Plein Air Study
This piece was done en plein air (outdoors) at a local park. It features a seagrape tree by the beach on Charlotte Harbor.
I usually do tone my canvas before beginning, but this is only the second one I toned in orange! I tried to let the canvas color show through the painting. I think it really adds to the hot sunny glow of the day.
