Mount Tolmie Oak

This was painted yesterday en plein air on Mount Tolmie
facing west toward the Malahat. It was our warmest day
this year and lovely to be out.
Although it is a scourge to our environment,
the yellow flowered Scotch broom was in full glory as
were our native purple camas lily's.
I did a few touch ups on this one when I got it back
to the studio (and removed a few insects).
I'm afraid that this image came out a
bit on the dark side...ergh!
Oil on canvas 11 x 14.
Comments always welcomed!

When I saw you nearing the end of your painting up on Mount Tolmie you expressed misgivings about the tonal value of the distant mountain - but having been there myself I can testify that you have it exactly right!

I like this painting. It reminds me of some of my favorite impressionist works. I like your blog too. Would you like to do a link exchange? I’m a fellow artist trying to build my ranking by getting more reciprocal links. You can email me at amaloneyart@gmail.com
