Tree, Early Morning Light, San Jose

 

Tree, Early Morning Light, San Jose, California, 30 x 21cm, Acrylic on Paper, 17-21:6:2017, by David Lloyd

                                           Acrylic on Paper, 30 x 21 cm, June 2017                                                             This painting was done “en plein air” over three early morning sessions in San Jose, California. It was painted whilst I was staying with relatives in San Jose. I was struck by the strange beauty and shape of this tree and also the beautiful crispness of the morning light in California. I painted it over three sessions because the light would change as the sun rose higher and changed the colours and shadows of the sky and branches of the tree. I built up the detail of this painting by overlaying and adding thin layers of transparent Acrylic paint on top of each other.
