The color and texture of these eucalyptus trees caught my eye. They stand along the border of a local farm, planted generations ago as a wind-break for the crops.
I've always been attracted to their multi-hued, highly-textured trunks and decided to set up my pochade easel here and paint them from life (known as plein air painting).
The rich colors of the trees contrast with the very pale colors in the sky, which adds extra interest to this little gem. I was pleased with this painting and I hope you like it too.
Thanks for stopping to look.
