A bright, sunlit Beech tree is an amazing thing. I see them all around the woods that we explore, and in the Winter months, when the trees are bare, the Beeches still hold their orange white leaves, creating an even more intense reflected light in the woods. This image, with a carpet of those dry leaves and the bright trunks, struck me as a very basic view that I hadn't painted before, just the trunk and the ground full of leaves in full sunlight.
