Winter Sheen

20x30 Oil Palette Knife painting


I wanted to paint a large painting with the values very close in range, I sometimes get carried away with my darks so to help me work that out I decided painting the values closer together might help me. I am very pleased with this painting, very suttle and the sheen on the mountain is just like it was the day I was standing out there painting the little study for this last February. I was unable to find my original photo's so the painting was done solely using my little study, between that and using the palette knife I felt very free to be the "artist"
and tell the story my way!

Hope you enjoy it too, thanks for visiting,

Another excellent palette painting. You do wonders with the palette.. I particularly like the top or the mountains.. The scene is very clear and alive...Wonderful...
