Saturday was warm with some gusty winds.  I went to the park in Moorestown near Swedes Run to paint a study of winter trees.  I tried to keep the palette simple by using a few neutral grays, phthalo blue, mars orange, yellow ochre and buff titanium.  The sky is a mix of ultramarine blue and titanium white.
