Winter Glory

A walk through the woods on a nice sunny winter day always presents lots of subject matter to paint for those days when it is too cold or cloudy to explore.

Snowed In

Century farm houses capture my attention especially when they are as picturesque as this one.  Of course I used artistic license to create a unique painting!

We are fortunate to experience the four seasons - lots of artistic opportunities.  The interplay of shadows and sunlight on the snow is one of my favourite subjects.

Barn Raising - Final Draft

Finished! I have added a few more details - the darker shadows on the silo, the windows and around the base of the barn.  There are some tree trunks to the right and some shadows in the foreground.  I have taken off the masking tape from the perimeter and as I mentioned in one of my first posts, the white edge allows me to observe the painting without the distraction of messy edges.
I will be framing 'my barn' with double white acid free mats and a dark wood frame.

I hope you have enjoyed following my painting process.  I am getting prepared for 'Welcome Back to Otterville'  Studio Tour  November 21 & 22  10am - 5pm  There will be many new works including the barn.
