This painting is done on pastel card with soft pastels and measures 22"x28". One of the big cattle ranches in Orange County turned into a park: Caspers Park is full of old oaks and sycamore trees. The amazing light coming through the branches and the contrasting shadows underneath were what drew me to this subject. I think a better communication of the vibrant light coming through the branches was needed. This I think will be a really great subject for an oil painting further down the line. I think I will also try this again as a pastel at some point.
