Evening Shadows - A Work in Progress

I like the multitude of colours that are reflected across snow surfaces. Especially in the early morning with the soft, subtle shades of pink, mauve and blue grey; as well as the stronger more dramatic oranges, and purples in the evening as the sun sets.

With this painting I have placed colour into the background having the warmer tones to the left and the cooler shades on the right side.

Using a purple made of alizarin crimson and cobalt blue I brushed in some of the main shadows for the tree trunks.

I will post this painting at a later date once more of it has been completed.
