#169 'Morning Light, Devils Punch Bowl' 8x10"

This is the second of the snow paintings in this area. I really enjoyed putting the light in - once all the darks and mids were in place. 

I'm starting a painting by mixing the main colour and then using that paint if I can as a starting point to mix other main colours and then mixing a range of light and dark tones. So I end up with piles of paint all connected with each other and therefore hamornising well. Starting like this means, it feels you are on top of it before you begin and having a lot of paint so you dont scrimp with it - I wanted a thicker look.

Just two days left for our exhibition. Here was a photo from Saturday at the Museum....


  1. I love the play of light and dark on the snow and the feeling one could just walk into the distance. I hope you have a good rest after the hard work for your exhibition.

  2. Oh that's a nice one, Clare, one of your best in my opinion. Great light and tonal range, and atmosphere.

    1. Thank you Caroline, really pelased you think its a good one! I was pleased with it :-)
