North of San Antonio

Oil on panel, 9"x12"

I used the previously done smaller version of the same titled painting as a study for this piece. It originated as a thumbnail, then a finished 6"x8" early this year and now this 9"x12" version.

Just beautiful!

Speaking of beauty, I got to take a few photos of a real live ancient Indian mound today; so cool! I hope some of them will turn out well enough to post on FB.

Very nice David! Having the cactus in the same value as the oaks really brings it forward. The haziness of the background trees really gives a felling of distance.

I wondered what is your process for painting the oak you start with a dark shape first and then add lights? Or do you bring it along all at the same time. I am trying to paint a landscape and I'm all over the map. I don't have a process yet.

Oh and I forgot to say I like the wildflowers. Love the hazy blue of those in the distance.
