Winter on Stony Creek

This is the first pastel of the new year! Wishing you all an artful, and happy 2017. I hope your holiday season was wonderful, and you are having a great New Year so far. I am recovering from being ill over the holiday break. I’m very happy to be feeling better, and looking forward to creating more this year.

Here’s a little oil painting of the full moon from the other night. It was started as a demo at my “Concept to Canvas workshop at Saratoga Arts. My winter schedule is now available on my Workshops page.

Winter Morning

“Winter Morning”| 9×12” | pastel and oil paint

Sold – Private collection in Saratoga Springs, NY

At my “Understanding Tonal Values” workshop at Arlene’s, I realized that I forgot my large pastel box. Luckily, I had my handy Terry Ludwig Basic Landscapes set with me – so I was able to get this demo done. I needed the tree stand to be darker than the darkest dark I had, so I decided to do an oil wash there. I am pretty pleased with how it all came together.

Until next time…
