Placing technique secondary to observation is the essence of working the field." (Ken Auster)

iewI was recently driving past a coastal golf course and noticed that many trees that had grown up leaning to one side due to being exposed to strong west winds. They looked like something that Van Gogh would have been intrigued by. I made a few quick studies from a vantage point across the road. Their natural fluidity made for interesting shapes.
