Winter shades

Jury's still out on whether I love it or hate it but I’ve received lots of positive feedback.

It's another heavily textured acrylic. Plaster base, several gesso coats followed by at least a dozen layers of paint and glaze.

The trees were made with thinned paint and applied with an eyedropper... gravity was in the driver's seat.

I think I've got these out of my system for the time being. Back to the oils soon.

Really neat! It's got mystery and depth, and I love those blue shadows on the snow.

It's beautiful, the feeling of sunlight in wintery forest is captured really well!

Wow - this has such an icy cold feel to it. Definitely says winter to me. I like how you've captured the icy cold of winter with colour and texture. Glad it doesn't get that cold here... :)
