I painted this 18×22 oil on canvas piece last summer when I took Dawn Whitelaw’s “Painting From a Reference Photo” workshop at Warehouse 521. I still haven’t written a blog post about that workshop but I intend to do so at some point. It was an incredible workshop and I learned so much from Dawn for whom I have the upmost respect and admiration.
This painting isn’t nearly as old as those featured in my previous Throwback Thursday posts, but I thought it was very fitting given the time of year.
And here is the reference photo I used…which I think is stunning! This photo was taken just down the road from my parents’ home and this tree always turns the most gorgeous fiery orange in the fall.
