20 minutes of practice

I was at  Core Creek Park for the last 20 minutes of sunlight today.  This is what it looked like when I got there. I took this picture before I set up knowing I was going to lose the sun shortly.

By the time I was halfway through the painting the sunlight was gone completely, I painted the sunlit trees first before the effect was gone.
I try to keep the major shapes of the painting simple, it helps me cover the canvas when time is limited.

When I got home I cleaned it up a little.
