The backdrop for this winter scene was one of a cold gray day at an English Moor just as the sun was setting.
The photographer (Elaine Cross of pmp) was walking the Moors with a friend having a great time taking some stunning photographs as the sun was setting. Great that is, until darkness started to cover the area and they began to lose their way. Spending the night in the marsh probably wasn’t something they planned on doing. The friend was anxious to hurry on home, but photographer that Elaine is, wanted to just keep on snapping pictures. Well guess who won? The friend might have gotten them out of there, but Elaine caught some fantastic images that I couldn’t resist painting.
Called, Winter at the Moors, you’re seeing my first ever snow painting (oil pastels).
