I think that winter is here to stay this time. The days have been cold enough that I feel the snow that has fallen lately will be here to stay and not melt until spring. Now, that may be just me !
It is not usually how cold it is outside that will influence my decision not to paint that day. The question that I have to ask myself is," How windy is it out there ? I think that I have reached a time in my plien air painting career when it is not fun while setting up to paint, only to fined that I will have to chase my canvas, easel and paints down the road or into a snow filled ditch, because of the wind.. I think that all of us at one time or another has been humiliated by the wind.
This piece was painted on a pregessoed and stained (red/ orange) Masonite panel using my usual limited palette. Again, I have added a couple of extra colours. Sap green, raw sienna and a "no name blue" were the colours added to my palette. My medium was OMS (odourless mineral spirits).
A fun piece to paint.. ( Hmmm, that blue has got to go ! )
