Evening Birch - Plein Air landscape painting

This is another tree in my backyard....well, in my neighbors backyard. I'm trying to more work from life so I painted in the backyard tonight. I was dealing with the light changing faster than I could mix my paint and then got sidetracked with a slight problem in the house. By the time I got back out there the sun had gone behind the distant trees and took the dappled light with it. So I had to finish it from memory.
