Snow Field--Original Landscape Oil Painting

This morning I awoke to an unexpected shower of snow. Winter seems to want to hang on longer than usual this year. With the wet and cold outside, I spent my morning in my studio painting. For this little 5x7 inch oil painting I began with an undercoat of alizarin crimson which gives a warm tint to the winter sky. Hopefully this will be the last of the white stuff and perhaps my last winter painting for the season. I have placed this painting for sale in my Etsy Gallery. Closeups of the heavy brush strokes are available by clicking here. The purchase price is $50.00 plus $6.50 for shipping to US addresses.

Nancy, I like the effect you got with the alizarin undercoat! It really gives your painting warmth.

Thanks Nancy--I much prefer a warm painting than a cool one--couldn't help myself--had to warm up that snow. Give that litte pug a scratch behind the ear for me.
