This is my 29th painting. I had a small revelation with this one where I finally starting "seeing" things in the painting and improvised much of it on the spot. It's also the first time I try to paint guided by emotion. I had a tough few days where I was feeling quite drab and I tried to reflect that using the grey winter tones in this painting. This one is very loosely based off "portrait of winter" as I used it just to guide my mountains while improvising the rest of the painting. I was also aiming to keep it under 2 hours, but in the end it took me 2 hours and 15 minutes to complete. Overall, a very pleasant experience. Felt immediately better after painting this one. 18x24.
