Winter's Colors

Winter's Colors - 6x6 -  Oil on panel


Recently I've begun painting on a orange-red underpainting, and this painting really demonstrates why I like it. It's not so much the pops of orange that occur through the painting, but the way it shines through thin layers of paint, as in the sky here. It really helped me capture that wispy pink look the sky takes on just before the real sunset begins!

I've finished this 11x14 studio piece titled "The Long Winter", you can see the information here.
