Pear Screen

Yesterday morning, Wednesday, I first did the drawing on site to familiarize myself with the scene, and then started the painting, which I completed in the studio.  It's apparently an old pear tree, with some life (not seen) at the top only.  The tree screens the Hopper, along with another row of trees in the middle ground, and assists in countering green.  The light kept changing all the time so I had to remember what I originally liked about this view yesterday to complete the painting.   I took a couple digital photos during the session, which were helpful.
