White Oak, Horizontal

White Oak, Horizontal 24x36", oil on canvas

I completed this second white oak painting a little more than a week ago.  I worked with a red under painting on the trunk and layered with blueish grays that I mixed from cobalt blue, indian red, burnt umber & siennia... and white.  Some areas I splashed with violet.  The greens in the leaves are a mix of viridian green, chromium oxide and a chartreuse hue I can't recall the name for with cadmium orange blended at the edges.
