Tree study with yellow ochre on linen

Studying structure, value and pigments. Pleased with the yellow ochre used here, in addition to raw sienna, burnt sienna, pthalo blue, chromatic black and flake white. A limited palette helps to establish a baseline for the values, and I feel I have made some progress in my description of trees with a brush. About 10"x8" oil on loose linen taped to a board. bargain priced at $80.00 for the holidays.
