With the current hot weather getting me all hot and bothered I thought a nice little winter scene would help cool me down. To be honest, I actually prefer winter to summer. I don't really mind the early dark nights and I like to look at the stars.
This one came from a Ron Ranson book. The bottom of the sky is a Raw Sienna / Lemon Yellow mix with Ultramarine at the top. The clouds are a mixture of Paynes Grey and Alizarin Crimson.
I love to paint wide expanses of land where you can see for miles. In hindsight, I think a little figure by the gate may have enhanced it slightly.
I never did any painting yesterday. You can blame Xbox Live for that. It's so easy to get distracted!
