Ponderosa and Balsamroot…

  1. Totally lovely. The diffuse color (if that is the right word) makes that tree seem old and wise in contrast with the new yellow. One could live with that tree a long time!

  2. Great composition and light, Ben. I love the variety of color showing throughout the branches. I notice some void spaces around the painting – like Thompson used to outline with a red color and then leave some of it showing… same principle in yours?


    • Thanks Jerry–I just like working on a toned background. Thompson really controlled it much better and consciously used it, I just kind of let it show through by accident.
