Winter Stream







Winter Stream 8x10 oil 

I wanted to continue the snow theme.  Snow has been scarce here in southeast Pa. this year, but I still  wanted to get some practice painting snow scenes. The painting itself is from my imagination, a totally made up scene. I like the contrast of the dark water against the snow, and the pine trees reflected in the stream.
I wanted to see if I could construct a painting from what I have learned and observed over the years.
