The Rowan Tree

I saw this beautiful rowan while visiting Leavenworth, a small town on the east side of Cascade Mountains. It was a warm September day and leaves had just barely started to turn colors. Gentle autumn sun showed through the clouds, making the place glow with a soft golden haze, so I decided that using wet-on-wet technique for my painting would be the best way to capture that enchanting light and atmosphere.
