All is quiet.
Silent Snow Oils on canvas board 8 x 12 inches SOLD
It snowed today on the hills.
The day is closing and the soft, muffled landscape shines with the sunset.
I love this piece...it very nearly ended on the bonfire but I rubbed the paint down, abstracted it a little more and now the atmosphere I was hoping for has appeared.
Rubbing paint off a failing painting can be a saviour and not to be feared. Occasionally my work benefits from a drastic repair and the only way is to be firm.
The work was created with a one inch brush yet I found myself tightening up.
After rubbing down, a few flourishes with Titanium white tinted with
pink and yellow set the scene. Time to walk away and leave it alone.
