Scott develops a gesture of a tree grouping to explore greens outside. This episode was originally aired during Plein Air Live 2020.

At approximately 13:00 into the episode, Scott begins to mix his initial green. Listen to (or re-watch) this portion of the episode to hear him react to the color mix he is creating.
Find several photos of tree groupings with variations in the color green.
Create a series of small gestural studies of the each photo. Spend no more than 30 minutes on each gestural painting.
Evaluate each gestural study in your Journal.
Redo at least one of the gestural studies until you are satisfied with the final result.
Oil or gouache paints.
