Just like a golfer can’t go to the driving range enough a painter can’t make enough studies. I’ve looked at this tree out my studio window a thousand times but by painting it I learned a little more.
All trees have their own distinct characteristics, by studying them you can be true to them with paint instead of reverting to a stereotype tree like we all drew when we were five.
