Beneath the Eucalyptus Tree

This afternoon I went over to Lake Murray Park and painted for a few hours.  The late afternoon light had a golden glow which was especially bright on the bark of the Eucalyptus trees along the shore. A woman and her small dog with a large tail came along and obliged me by admiring the view for a few minutes.

The last three days I have used paper that is about twice as long as it is wide. The first day I used it in landscape mode, these next two days in portrait. I like the way the portrait orientation suggests the majesty of nature.

This is a 6 X 12-inch gouache painting.
