Oil on Board, 12 x 17 inches
I did this commissioned painting a couple of weeks ago, but couldn't post it in case the receiver saw it before Christmas Day!
It's a view in my village from a couple of years ago when we had a good snowfall, transforming the roofs of the barns and buildings into a lovely pattern of blue and white rectangles. Sunlight and shadows on snow is always gorgeous to paint, and with the yellowy sky punctured by the church spire, this was a perfect composition. The brick-red end of the barn provided a lovely touch of warmth too.
The recipient was very pleased with the painting, especially as it was a complete surprise!
