One of the fun things about taking reference photos from the car is you can get so many angles on a scene. This is the same fence as the last painting, but from the opposite side. There's nothing like a nice fence to spice up a composition!


  1. Love the simplicity of the shapes and colors!!!

  2. Melanie, you are painting a great series with this fence!

  3. Fences create useful leading lines. Again, lovely colours and shapes here!

  4. I love the peaceful simplicity of this painting. And burrrrrrrrrr... it makes me feel cold. Never mind that I'm in the Midwest and the temperature is in negative digits.

  5. Your painting style is beautiful, Melanie. Soft but strong.I love Winters Breath.
