Love the warm leaves vibrating next to that blue sky. Wonderful!

Somehow, I feel the chill in the air of this one. The light is perfect and these do look like my favorite oak trees. Love the addition of roofline or low wall to lead you meandering into the painting too. So pretty, Celeste!!

Almost is right! Lovely painting-almost like the last of the leaves are barely hanging on:)

Sheryl Anthony said...

These colors are just right and the gnarly limbs are so well done.

A sketch? It is a beautiful painting that says just what you want it to. It looks effortless.....and I know it is not.

Carol Hopper said...

You exactly captured what the title says. This painting is lovely as I especially like the way you painted around the branches. That technique is very painterly and luscious.

Bonjour ma chère Céleste,

Je voulais vous dire que j'adore l'harmonie des couleurs que vous avez employées pour cette peinture. Elles rendent un bel hommage à ces arbres et apporte un beau contraste.
J'aime aussi la profondeur dans cette très jolie oeuvre.

Gros bisous
