Sunlit Winter Farm

Sunlit Winter Farm
Oil on canvas panel, 7x5

Today was bright and beautiful - warming up to 61 degrees!  Crazy for January!  Taking today's lighting and applying it to last week's snow, brought me to the warm turquoise blues in this scene. I have also used my old fav, ultramarine.  Using a limited palette today, I add warmth throughout the landscape with yellow ochre and burnt sienna.  I am painting on canvas again, and after a few days of painting on the smooth surfaces of wood, the shift to a woven texture is a challenge.  The tooth grabs the paint in interesting ways, but a smooth surface allows me to be in control.  Both have advantages.  This painting makes 748 in 748 days, and Day 17 of the 30 Day Painting Challenge.
