On The Easel 10.11.20

"Evening Serenity"
24" X 36" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
To date this has to be my largest painting with eucalyptus trees. This was so fun to paint it isn't funny. I went with a different sky color approach using a mix of Cerulean Blue, Titanium White and just a bit of Cadmium Yellow Light. This combination gives the sky a greenish/blue color. Too much cad yellow and you get a green sky so when I say "a bit" of cad yellow it is a bit. While letting this one sit for a day or two I did a couple of small ones on my pochade easel. Came back to this one and did a few touch ups and I'll let it sit for another day before calling it finished.


  1. You went for it!! Love the foreground leading to the tree. Can't wait to see it in more detail!

  2. Hi Christine,
    Yep...decided to just use one of the 24x36 gallery wrapped canvases for this one. Good thing because I don't need to frame that puppy. You'll see it at the studio tour in November if you make it here.
