art every day 4

I've always wanted to paint trees darkened black by rain but never have.  With the every day painting challenge in mind I took the opportunity.  It was pretty dreary but the black of the trees with the color of the leaves was striking.  I think I need to keep at it though, this little painting captures barely a slice of what I have been imagining.  I got a little heavy with the watercolor so I think if I try working a bigger sketch next time it might loosen me up.   Also it is usally a larger expanse of wooded areas and trees that most often catches my attention.  I'm sure there will be plenty more days of wet weather to come...
