Day 4. Christmas Day. This one really didn’t turn out as I hoped. Sitting in a gale force wind, the sun seemed to dissappeared before I could finish the tree.That’s the challenge of plein air painting. Decided I’ll resist ‘fixing up’ any of the paintings when I get inside the house during this challenge.
The tree is a pepper tree. Don’t ask me what variety. Its a type of Schinus. Looks like the Schinus molle in my uneducated view.
Its one branch is leaning on a wall of the old pig styes on the farm. We no longer farm with pigs.
