Happy New Year to each of you and thank you for following this blog and all of your encouraging comments. Another thanks to all the artists' blogs I follow, for sharing your work and your knowledge. It has been a pleasure to visit your blogs.
This TMC is again of an area across the highway from me. Again, I eliminated the buildings because I wanted to concentrate on the leafless tree. There are so many landscape artist I admire that can paint leafless trees so well, that get the essence of the bare branches with just a few leaves hanging on. Will have to practice more to get the essence of distant branches and leaves. Still, it was a beautiful morning with frost on the ground and the sun shining just behind the mountain.
