Illustartion Friday - Tree

This is a pine tree study that I tried to interpret in the style of a great Canadian painter, Lawren Harris. 
He was a leading figure in the prominent "Group of Seven" painters. They were mostly known for their landscape paintings of the Canadian wilderness, although Harris himself also painted portraits, cityscapes, and even abstract late in his career.
Harris has always been a great influence for my oil painting and now my illustrations as well.
