Winter Trees 8 - A Work in Progress

Today the temperature is hovering around the freezing mark 32F (0C) and it is raining, but it could as easily change to freezing rain or snow.

I started by putting in the sky with washes of cobalt blue and alizarin crimson and continued with slightly darker mix of the same two colours into the snow.

Next I ran a little bit of the red in a few spots on the top of the snowbank.

Using a mix of cobalt blue and burnt sienna I put in some of the main tree trunks and branches.

I wanted to think about what more I would like to do with the trees and I set it aside to dry.

Once it dried I indicated a few pine trees and more branches on the trees.

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

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork and I hope you will return often.
