Tree Under Freeway
This was a hard painting to make work for me. It has many properties that had to designed to make it clear for the viewer to understand. First and foremost, the angle of the tree which was planted without next to the house that had a freeway built over it. The tree is struggling to reach out to the sun. There also were perspective issues, ugly fence colors, etc. to deal with. I did some editing and a car came and parked in the shadow which was unexpected.
