Iron Wood 9" x 12" O/P
This is an unusual format for me in that I do not as a rule paint many vertical paintings. In this particular case I decided on a vertical format because of the strong vertical lines of the dark trees in the original scene. It was a natural !
As much as it is a winter snow scene, I really liked the fall colours in this scene. The painting is almost a contradiction in itself. I suppose the colours could have less intense . In spite of it being winter, I still find the painting has a stronger appeal with the (exaggerated) mid autumn colours.
My colours, of course, were the limited palette of the last few paintings, without my usual favourites .
I was happy with the way that this painting turned out !
