Evening Shadows 1 - A Work in Progress

I did this smaller version of Evening Shadows (see post 29 Oct 11) to make all the mistakes on this one rather than make a mess while trying to work out how I wish to finish the larger painting.

Starting with the light source I lightly indicated with pencil where the tree shadows would fall across the snow and started to put in the shadows with a aple mix of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna.

I will post both pieces at a later date once they are completed.
