Backlit Trees

We live close to a wildlife sanctuary which has a small stream going through it with several trees and bushes with cattails growing along the stream. Here is a sample of the trees with the afternoon sunlight.

Monterey Pines


A friend asked me to paint a mural on his living room wall so I've been working on a few studies of the coastline and those famous Monterey Pines. I've never painted anything bigger than a 20"x30" canvas so this will really be a chalenge. I wonder which study he'll pick for the mural. These are all watercolor on 140lb. Arches paper.
