Snow in the Valley

"Snow in the Valley"
6" x 6"
Oil on panel
This is a break in the tree line along the road I travel with some regularity and one of the places I photograph on a weekly basis.  The light hits it differently as the seasons change.  There's also enough distance to be able to catch some haze on occasion.

I was given a tool that intrigued me.  A Colour Shaper, I'm told.  It's a pointed rubber nib on a stick.  I painted the panel black.  Let it dry, then painted it white.  While the paint was wet, I drew on it hard enough to see the black underneath.  When it was dry, I glazed a bit of blue onto the top two thirds.  Isn't experimentation fun?  

This painting can be seen in my Gallery on  It's also for sale through that web site.  

Thank you for visiting today.
