Sundown in Cypresswood

Oil on panel, 20"x16"

The above photo used as a reference for the painting Sundown in Cypresswood was taken through the windshield of my car while driving down the road in my neighborhood. I used the far left side and modified the tree structure and design. I removed the road and created a meadow. I thought this might be an insight into how I use reference material by recreating the scene to make the painting a work of art.
