I setup near the Griswold Center and painted the pine. There were some nice shadows early on, behind the tree to the left, so I wanted to get those painted in early (hard to see the shadows in this photo).
It took some time, but finally one of my brushstrokes laid down just right!
I was painting with my back to the sun, and should have brought my shade umbrella. I had a lot of glare on the canvas while I was painting.
Very happy with the finished painting!
