Painting Trees in the Arboretum

On the first day of my landscape painting class I felt truly horrible, I'll spare the details for the guys' sake but it was all I could do to look at the tree and move my paintbrush around on the gessoed paper. The interesting thing is that I'm sure it is my best painting of the entire class, most likely because I wasn't thinking about it at all. I'm not about to induce pain upon myself before I paint but I would love to find another way to get a similar effect. Meditation maybe...
Anyways we were in the Arboretum which is one of my favorite places to be and I can't wait to go back and paint there again.
