First Snow of Winter - sold


20x15cm

I'm still not ready to paint plein air often at the moment and unless stated my landscape work is from my own photo references. A week or so ago I took a long walk with my camera and came home with lots of future paintings. Some will be be small eBay paintings some will be larger.

This painting is a good example of my approach to painting in that the photo reference was only used as a base reference. I could have painted this close to the photo and it would have been fine but as soon as I put in the sky I thought of snow. I do this often, reacting to my first application of paint which may not be a true reflection of the actual subject - if it doesn't work you can just wipe it off, but if you don't try you'll never know!

I changed the colour of the sky on purpose to see what would happen and this is what happened - for good or bad :)
