"Fallen Pine"

I did this as a copy from one of Richard Schmid's paintings. I've always read and heard that copying from well known artists is a great way to help learn their methods and processes.  I had a lot of fun with this painting and definitely learned some things.  I plan on doing more such studies.

Oil, 8 x 10 inches.


  1. I just got Richard Schmids' Landscapes book in the mail today. He composes simal themes in some of his pieces. This one is great!

  2. Hi Andrew,

    Thank you. This one was definitely different for me but I had fun with it.
