Autumn Live Oak - Completed

At our open studio yesterday, I completed the Live Oak in Autumn painting. I darkened the value of the shadows. I increased the intensity of the color of the leaves. I added more warm colors in the leaves. I like the result. I used my artistic license to give the live oaks additional warm colors to give it the feel of autumn. I used intense autumn colors on the ground to really show the season. I let more sky show through the leaves to give some 'lightness' to the trees which so many trees have in autumn. Overall I think it works. Enjoy!
