Morning at the Creek
16 x 14 in
Framed under non-reflective museum quality glass. The painting is set under spacers in order to keep the glass raised. The stained wood frame is handmade with lovely cut details. Each frame is unique to the piece.
Painted in studio from plein air sketches combined with reference photos
Actually, this was an overcast afternoon, and the light was kind of bland. I picked up the wrong pastel, to work on the snow and the marks looked like streaks of sunlight. I decided to add some warm highlights to the tree trunks and branches, blue up the sky and it became morning.
