Day 2 of work in progress 24 x 36 inch oil

Today I picked my color palette and got started on the upper half of the painting.  I am happy with the muted lavenders and for a punch of color I had to add some orange.  The trees are blocked in and will need a lot of work to make the texture of the birch work.  I will probably get started on the shadows tomorrow. Overall I am happy with the progress of this one.  This is done entirely with the palette knife and fingers - no brushes!
