winter scene

(11x15)
This is from a photo I found on Paint My Photo ... I was drawn to the very limited palette. I tried breaking the image down into 5 values, then started painting with the second-lightest value (the 1st is the paper).
I used Bleed-Proof White for the snow on the trees.

This blows me away. Sooooo wonderful. I love the progression, and the muted colour just reads winter and snug somehow, although it's clear it's cold.

XOXOXOXOXO Barbara

Lovely - the low key palette represents the way I see winter in this part of the world.
