Snow Bales

A snow storm blew through last night and dumped about 5 to 6 inches here in town. I took the opportunity to try another plein air snowscape, even though the temperature was pretty cold and the wind was blowing a bit. I took shelter next to a building which kept a lot of the wind off me as I painted. This one is close to being finished, but I'll probably tweak the values of the building a little.

I'm including a detail shot and a shot of me and my layers. ;)

I think this is gorgeous, Bill. I love winter scenes in paintings and that pop of red is beautiful. I am intrigued by that house up on the hill...

Bill Guffey said...

Ha! That's good observation, Kelsie. Maybe I picked the subject subliminally.

Bill Guffey said...

Thanks William. Trees freak me out, man!

Bill Guffey said...

Thanks Carl.

Appreciate the kind words, AutumnLeaves.

Amazing work, Bill. I moan about doing quick sketches in the cold - you must have anti-freeze instead of blood!
Can't wait to find out where we're all travelling to next on VP.

Beautiful the best word to describe you paintings.
