The Big Freeze at Lyndon

Oil on Board, 12 x 17 inches

I'm entering this one into the Patchings Open Art Competition which closes on Thursday.  Going to do one more tomorrow too to just get in under the razor wire!

I enjoyed painting this - it was a gorgeous setting, with the frosted tracery of branches set against the bright blue sky, with that lovely touch of warmth of the sunlit brick cottage across the junction. Frosted branches are quite a challenge to depict successfully - I used my trusty 1" household paintbrush dragged across the surface with a few judicious swipes of the three camel-haired brush here and there.

  1. Le rendu du givre est vraiment spectaculaire ainsi que celui de vos arbres!... Ils sont magnifiques.
    J'aime également la lumière du soleil qui vient réchauffer et mettre en valeur ce merveilleux paysage hivernal. Peindre la neige n'est pas aisé.

    Gros bisous
