Oak tree trunk study with the season's first reddish poison oak leaves appearing. Watercolor on hot pressed sheet paper. Pencil, carbon pencil, light washes, brush pen and pen. 8" x 10". Preparing field studies for studio oil paintings. As you can probably guess trees are my theme. As a reminder, I'm teaching in San Francisco this fall - Gouache & Watercolor workshop - don't miss out!
