New Snow Scene
Here's a painting I just did this afternoon. It's on a 12"x12" "gallery wrap" canvas with paintable edges, thus eliminating the need for framing. Plus, that format lends a much more 3-dimensional feel.
While it was inspired by my snowshoe trek yesterday, I didn't try to copy it exactly. The photo from my hike was way too complicated and busy to include every detail, so I went more for the "feel" and a pleasing composition.
Initially, I had planned to block in the larger areas with Acrylics, then layer Oils over the top. However, once I got started, it just felt right to continue with that medium, so it is entirely in Acrylics.
I have an upcoming display at the Canton-Potsdam Hospital and I think I'll include this one for that exhibit.
