I have been painting a lot of winter scenes lately...well it is January!Still putting some finishing touches on an acrylic painting and a watercolor painting, both done from the same reference, but completely different in character. I love the challenge of painting the colors of winter, especially the long blue and purple shadows stretching across the snow covered landscape and the delicate yellows, pinks and oranges found in the sunlight glinting off the snow.

Pictured here is a painting from a few years ago, based on a photo taken one day when we were out hiking around the lake. I love snow covered dock and boat "wintering" on the shore and the cozy camp nestled in the trees.
