The oak tree painting continues ...
plus probably my favorite of the California impressionists

WORK-IN-PROGRESS • 24 x 30 oak tree landscape painting

I love painting trees. I really don’t think I’ll ever get tired of it. I’m going to try to finish this one today.

German-born California impressionist William Wendt (1865-1946) is one of my absolute favorite artists. I’ve been studying his later paintings of the glorious California landscape, paying special attention to how he used bold, broad strokes to simplify the shapes of the hills and trees. Beautiful.
