I have been trying to do this lassie's back using paynes grey and white to help me work on my values a bit.........still working on it ......
Oil on board.

Berries in snow

I did this one quickly last night ....before JJ starts shouting at me!!!
I spent about 30 mins on it .......I know ....I know .....I am trying to make an excuse for it being awful. I actually enjoyed this quickie!

It was pretty hot here today...about 42 deg. Missy(dog) Hazel(kitty)and I stayed indoors.While they both totally relaxed, I 'cooled off' with the snow scene!
I took some artistic license and simplified the tree area. Also changed the mood to more of a night scene.Oh! I also gessoed the surface and combed into the damp gesso to create some texture.
It was a very pleasant way to spend an extremely hot afternoon.
