Northern Spruce In Autumn 24" x 30" o/c
Does this one look familiar ? It is not exactly a winter painting, is it ? In retrospect, perhaps I should have made a few prints of this painting. I have been busy since my last post painting commissions and other studio work. This particular piece is a studio painting from a plein air reference that was painted during the last autumn. I think that this is the third painting of the same scene. Still trying to get it right, I guess.
This piece was painted with my limited palette on a gessoed canvas. That limited palette consists of, Cadmium Yellow Med., Ultramarine Blue, Alizarin and Titanium White. The initial layout or drawing was executed with Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna with lots of medium (odourless solvent) This was my medium of choice for the rest of the painting as well.
