First Snow Of The Coming Winter

Cold With Some Snow    9" x 12"    o/p
We woke up this morning to our first light 'dusting' of snow of this late fall season. By the afternoon, the cold had surrendered to the late afternoon sun and the early dusting had all but disappeared . A sure sign of what we can expect in the coming winter days.
This piece was painted on a pre stained panel (acrylic yellow red ) using a split palette of warm and cold red, yellow and blue.  My medium for this painting was odourless mineral spirits.
So, painting of the white stuff finally starts !
'til next...

Frank, the red under painting is very effective in this one. Adds a lot of atmosphere to the first snow. How do you find working in the cold?
