PALM TREE GROWING WILD, 5x7 INCH PLEIN AIR OIL PAINTING by TOM BROWN


The interesting textures of the dried palm fronds skirting this tree caught my eye, and I wanted to capture it on canvas.

I discovered this palm tree growing wild in a field while out hiking with my plein air equipment, and quickly set up my easel to paint it.

Paintings done on location working directly from nature always seem to carry a bit of extra magic.
There's something about getting out in the fresh air and sunshine with my paint box and capturing the sensations I'm experiencing. The warmth of the sun, the clean fresh air, the sounds of birds; it all seems to become a part of the painting.

I hope you can feel the same sense of joy in this one that I felt when painting it.
