View Full Version : Snow and No Snow
I'm really putting my artistic license to good use with this one! I needed a snow scene of this area for an upcoming show but we haven't had any snow yet this season and the PA snow scenes of this area I have from last year didn't really have much potential to go larger so I took a recent PA that had composition possibilities and used that as the basis for this snowy painting.

This is wonderful! I love how convincing the snow scene is. I love the light in your studio painting :).
Thanks for lookin' Rain. I've done a bunch of snow paintings PA so I can draw on that experience also this is a local state park and I have been painting there a couple of times a week for almost two years now and I walk there every day so land, light, trees the whole feel of the place is very familiar to me, plus I love it there!

You've found good warms and cools in the snow. Makes it very convincing. I know the "snow" scenes don't sell as well, but they sure are pleasant to look at!
Yes snow scenes are a hard sell....:rolleyes: but I'm having a show in April at a gallery and the theme is "A Year at Hammonasset" (that's the name of the state park) and I wanted a large size piece for each of the 4 seasons. This one was awfully fun to do too because I did a full blown underpainting in blues and purples, it looked like a fantasy landscape at that point and my daughter thought I should have just added a dragon and left it as it was :lol:
I have another to post soon that is a sunset over the dunes in spring/early summer and that one got a wild hot pink underpainting and I remembered to take a picture so as soon as I get a good photo I'll post so you guys can see.
