Sunlight Thru CA Trees (Nevada City #3) / by debbie rich

The next version of my favorite scene of Nevada City, CA. Now turned into the series "Sunlight Through California Trees" after renamed for a (successful) submission to a commercial calendar produced by the Aquent Creative Agency. I've done my first painting pass, washing in the basics of all the trees.

I sketched the blue underpainting in mid-November but then only stabbed here & there at the canvas for a month. Distractions of the holidays, along with and among other blinky things.. Sunlight Thru CA Trees #2, completed in May 2015, was pencil and oil on watercolor paper. Sunlight #3 will be my first oil-on-canvas for this image.
