Eucalyptus at Fairmead Park

Fairmead Park is a smallish urban park in Richmond, CA. I had intended to paint some view of San Pablo, but when I saw this tree, I knew that is what I wanted to paint. After I painted the main tree, I realized that I needed another background tree. So I painted the tree on the left. I wasn't sure it was going to work to paint the background tree after the main tree. I usually would have painted the bg first.

  1. Beautiful Larry! It reminds me of the illustrations in my original (not Disney) Winnie the Pooh book. I can just picture with his honey pot sitting under the tree.

  2. I like this. The trunks of the tree in front have real solidity and space about them.
