Here is a night-time snow scene, again using mainly colors in the blue family.
Evening Smoke, an oil pastel (5×9), was painted on light gray tinted mi-teintes pastel paper. The reference image for this scene was facing the opposite direction and was a gray late afternoon. My vision for the piece was to turn it into a night-time scene using blues and with the hills starting at the top-left slanting down to the bottom-right. A long time ago I read that a composition with hills will read better for the viewer if the top of a hillside starts on the left-side of a painting with the slope coming down to the right – it’s a more comfortable position for the viewer (as when reading a page from left to right). Only ones opinion, but seems to work in my mind.
Anyways, another experiment for color schemes, blues used: prussian, ultramarine, sapphire, cerulean and blue sky.
Have a wonderful weekend ~
