Sunshine streams across a fresh snowfield as the clouds steal away. Our wet-into-wet technique creates soft, leafless trees in the distance. Texturing interests the viewer’s eye with a strongly detailed foreground and keeps a balance of the painted elements.
This painting is framed by the soft, darkened shadows in the backdrop of pines. The winter moon rises casting its light up into the snowy sky and down across the frozen fields below. Salt, wet-into-wet, pen work, and careful dry brush all come together to create this peaceful scene.
The structure that holds so many once loved memories stands propped up amid the autumn landscape to maintain until help arrives. Bright wet-into-wet colors, wiping out, pen painting and dry brushing all help to set the scene.
