making changes to tree 1 / by Philip Tarlow

noon: BELOW is a comparative view of tree 1 this morning & just now. the blue is lighter; the browns on the bottom are lighter & broken up by twigs, branches & grasses, and the tree itself has more dimensionality and coloristic variance. if i carry out my idea of a series of aspens, they will all be tall & narrow. i've always loved this shape.

11:04 AM: i'm about to make changes to the painting i began yesterday: tree 1. the blue is too strong, as are the browns at the bottom. more pics as available.
