Waking up dormant artistic aptitude by painting as often as possible.
My friend Marlene posted a picture of her property on Instagram and was gave me permission to paint it. I love the cool shadows on the snow compared to the warm orange leaves left on the trees.
This one has been marinating on the easel for a while. I darkened the sky at the top and added a little red in nearby clouds and that helped to bring them forward.
I've always liked long afternoon shadows, especially across snow, and you're left with the cool blues of the snow and warm tones of the sunlight peeking through.
