Hard Frost

Oil on Canvas, 16 x 22 inches

This is a hark back to the big freeze in December before the snowfall.  The river was partly frozen over and everything coated with hoar frost - a bit like icing sugar on a doughnut, but tastier.
I love painting frost - an exercise in close tones, almost monochrome, with very subtle colour changes.  I love our country with all its glorious seasons.
