Oil on Board, 71/2 x 10 inches SOLD
This is another studio painting done from reference photographs taken on the day I painted 'First Snow of Winter' (15th January Post) en plein air.
Inevitably, this one is a little 'tighter', with the comfort of the studio allowing longer consideration of technique to produce a more resolved painting. Painting 'looser' is a constant battle for me, and I really should set myself a certain number of hours to paint a picture, depending on its acreage. Out in 'the raw', you have no choice - time is of the essence and you are forced to work quickly, getting the important elements down without prevarication.
Right, on to the next....
