|"Snow and Trees"|
Oil on panel
I've had this reference photo for a while, and always wanted to paint it, but I was always afraid of the challenging subject.
Snow is not easy to paint, and all those trees can surely risk to look naive once painted.
I've been pulling up the photo to paint it, only to postpone it for a while, each time. I finally found the courage, and here is is. For better or for worse: Snow and Trees.
And I have to admit, I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I tried to use no pure white to represent the snow, and made the trees impressionistic. I like it. : ) (Phewww)
