Cold and blustery, that’s the atmosphere I wanted to create. A day when some of you prefer to stay indoors where it’s nice and warm, but if you are the adventurer type – you grab your snow shoes and have a ball managing through the thick drifts of snow. Whatever your preference, get ready the white stuff is coming . . .
Snowy Day, an oil pastel (7×5) painted on cream tinted Mi-Tientes pastel paper using Senneliers and Mungyo-Gallery brand oil pastels. My vision for the painting was a blustery day so I went to work first painting the basic elements with a limited palette of several blues and raw umber, a firm clay shaper was used to create bare tree branches, layered snow-filled branches were done with a palette knife, and finally to create the wind/snowing effect a razor was used by swiping and scraping in a few strategic places.
Oh yeah, winter is knocking at the door! Click onto the image for a larger view of details.
