This is the second painting done of an arbutus tree.  The reference photo was taken locally at Mill Bay , Vancouver Island.

This is one of two paintings (Iwill post the other when finished) that I did from some photos I took of arbutus trees in Mill Bay, B.C.  I love the thick, peeling, orange bark and how their limbs curve in every direction.  This painting is 24 x 12 inches and it is done in oil.

I have been experimenting a bit with style and medium lately.  The first painting is styled after Mike Svob a Vancouver artist who I really admire.  I love his unusual use of color and the subjects that he paints.  I used acrylic for this one, something I haven't done a lot of recently.  I pushed the envelope with color and thoroughly enjoyed the whole process.  The last painting is another in my tree series done in oil with the palette knife.  I am really loving using the knife and am having fun with color and expression.
