oil painting doodles – leaf studies…

leaves!
leaves!

 

more leaves!
more leaves!

Have not been posting lately… it’s been that kind of summer so far – too much work, not enough painting!

These are two very small oil paintings (8″x8″) done in a short time. I plan to continue working on them, with what you see here just being the under-painting. This may become a series of studies inspired by trees and the feeling that one can get of refuge and tranquility when there is a canopy of foliage overhead…
