November Evening in Indiana

Oil on Linen

I was asked to do a larger Winter painting for a photo session this week. My smaller plein air canvases are prepped with an orange background, but for this studio painting, I started with a dark blue background. It's always interesting working in a different manner and analyzing color as the painting builds. For this landscape, I wanted to show the snow in the last light of the day as well as the dark trees silhouetted against the sky.
