Snow Tree ..11" x 14" ..O/P
Believe it or not, there is still no snow on the ground and the temps continue to hover around the thirty-two and thirty -seven F* mark. ...And here it is, the end of the first week in January.
So, what am I looking at ? I have grown quite restless waiting for the opportunity to paint "snow".
The piece above was painted using a reference photo that was originally quite dark and rather colourless that I changed to a continuous gray toned photo. By doing this, I could proceed with the painting without being influenced by the colours of the original photo and still exercise my own colour experiences for this type of scene..
My palette for this painting was my latest new palette that I used in the previous two paintings.
I found this exercise to be both practical and of course, fun.
