As it happens on occasion, I did not have to travel a long way from home to find this scene. I was able to stand on the plowed snow bank, which helped to give an elevated vue of the subject. A little unsual for me and a nice change of pace.
This piece is painted on (my standard it seems) a prepared Masonite panel with my three coats of gesso and lastly, a coat of Colourfix Primer toned to a mid grey.
I am still experimenting with the drybrush layin as opposed to a "washy" method of laying in. The outcome may best be seen in the trees of the background. Little or no medium was used in this area. As the painting progressed, my colours where mixed as needed on the palette and scumbled onto the dry suface. The colours stayed where layed. I liked the effect !
I am still painting with the rather limited palette and it seems to suit this method in that the colours seems to stay cleaner as there are fewer of them in the mixtures.
So, the journey continues..
