December Snow 2 # 188

10x8 Oil on lined panel - painted from life 12/21/09 started 7:30 AM completed 8:30 AM.
We had a great snow fall here, great because we didn't lose heat or power this time. It also stayed cold with sunny days since it stopped. We still have tons of snow. Great to study the snow and it's colour palette. I added Burnt sienna back in, works especially well with French Ultramarine. I did a number of panels over the last days, mostly of the sun.

A Fabulous Friday in Fall by BJ Wright

8"x10" oil on RayMar panel, painted en plein air, alla prima, on November 13th (completed at 11:20am)...$85 including shipping. In trying several different painting ideas, I had pre-toned some canvas panels using alizarin crimson, cad yellow and ultramarine blue --- brushing the thinned paint on in a somewhat planned but otherwise haphazard way. Letting the toned canvas peek through serves to unite the painting. The pear trees, with their red foliage, contrasted with the evergreens nearby. As noontime approached, shadows were quickly disappearing. Although it appears that black paint was used, it was actually a mixture of ultramarine blue and burnt umber. Contact for purchase.
