Studio Sunday - Pines Path

I've got a thing for pine trees. They are my favorite tree to paint, if you haven't noticed. This painting was done on Arches Oil paper. It looks just like Arches Watercolor paper but it is made for oil paints. It takes some time to get used to how to paint on it, as I feel you need a good layer of thin paint down before it starts to behave. I feel I had good luck with this one. It came together pretty quickly and so I didn't get any process shots.
