Re: Snowstorm from the window

For me your architecture is always solid (as in this case) and you have suggested blowing snow with what is for me just enough detail. I am reluctant to comment on your plein air work as it is so much better than anything that I can do. Plus it is smart to find a window from which to paint. Gary

Thank you for taking the time to comment, Gary.
I would appreciate any observations you have, I know you are a hard worker.

Thank you, Thomas.
Yes, it's oil on panel, 8x10.

Hi Jerry,
This is excellent, as always! you did a great job showing atmosphere, and if someone told me that they were going to paint snowflakes into a painting, I would be a little suspect, but you handled it very well. I'm getting cold just looking at it!

Hello, Kyle, it's nice to hear from you.

Haha, yeah painting snowflakes in motion was a bit of a funny problem to solve.
I studied the snow like I would anything else and tried my best to transfer the image from my (weakening) eyes to the panel.
I thought if I looked really hard the result would at least suggest the atmosphere.

Re: Snowstorm from the window

I like it! My eye is immediately drawn to the blue door.

What technique did you use to paint your snow flakes? I wise an old toothbrush. I dip it in some thinned paint and put my thumb on the bristles and let the paint splatter.
