You've given both trees new life, Cathy. I love the pattern of the roots, but sad they've been unearthed!
Such an interesting shape!! You really have given the poor tree new life. :)
Great painting and subject.
Beautiful, Cathy! I love those interesting roots, amazing how the tree survived!
Wonderful textures and values !!

Both the painting and subject is beautiful. I love trees like this - come to think of it...I love trees :-)Fantastic!Stew.stewcrowther.wordpress.com_________________________
Agree with all of the above!!
This was a really great object to spotlight your use of highlight and reflective highlight.
it looks wonderful! Love it
I really like how you were able to draw the tangle of branches and I love the green foliage. What colors of green paint did you use?
Quite beautiful...and so well painted!
Thanks for the comments!Barbara - I used Maimeri Sap Green, yellow green, and little bit of paynes grey for the darker bits.
This is so beautiful - love the illusion of light and shadow, and the coarseness and colors of the trees. This is absolutely fabulous.
