Happy New Year! 2014 is full of promise. I have had a small bout of cleaning and re-organizing (very small!), I am moved into my new studio (pictures of that to come), and we are now in the depths of winter.
I’m mostly painting at the studio these days, but here is a painting from a snow day (too snowy to brave our hilly driveway for the drive to the studio) at home, during Miriam’s nap time.
I find the narrow value range an enticing challenge for painting winter scenes. Not only is there not a broad contrast of light and darks, but there is also not a wide range of intensity (or saturation), either – all neutrals and grays.
