1530 Live Oak on the Indian River Plein Air, Alla Prima

I had a great time painting today at the old Fort Park with the Plein Air Painters of the Treasure Coast.  I had a nice turnout and the weather was perfect.  This old oak is on the river side of the road, I took some liberties with it, there is a total jungle  to the right of the tree in real life.

The painting is 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite.

The "Treasure Coast" sounds so adventurous with whispers of sunken ships and pirate treasure. That gnarled oak is beautiful and a treasure in itself.

Thanks Sherry, we do have an interesting history here. The oak is on the site of a fort that Benjamin Pierce ran, that is how the town of Fort Pierce got its name. There is an indian mound on the site too.
