First Snow

Today I needed to finish this painting for the Small Treasures Show that I thought I had completed last month (see posts on 23 December 2014 and 19 January 2015) which I will be hanging at KAGS tomorrow.

The only thing I needed to do is paint the foreground trees, add some growies and apply the final layer of snow.

The trunks were painted in using various mixtures of French ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, raw sienna, and alizarin crimson.

The yellow leaves were mixtures of Titanium white, cadmium yellow, lemon yellow, and draw sienna.

The brightest areas of snow were painted in using Titanium white with a touch of lemon yellow. Lastly the growies were painted at the base if the trees using mixtures of burnt sienna and raw sienna.

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork.
