A Warm Winter

Voy Kay 11 Jan 2020

Painted the same day as the previous one (old weathered barn) on a 14"x18" canvas. The oval was cut out of (hardly) adhesive contact paper which was then glued to the canvas. Halfway this painting, I thought I had a masterpiece coming up but right after I painted the bushes, I was ready to throw it in the fireplace. What is it with me that one day I can paint descent, almost perfect evergreens and bushes and the next, I'm at kindergarten again. Failed once more at the bushes which I desperately tried to save with some liquid white tans and some sticks (which helped a little I think). Failed once more at the evergreens where I really will have to look into the right technique for these, also for highlighting them.
Easiest for this painting were the distant hills and perhaps the cabin, or as my family called it, the dog shelter, since I painted it almost microsized. And yes, could have used more pink in the sky as well!
I can recommend the oval idea however which really gives the whole painting some extra punch and value.

Over a month without comments …. guess this was indeed a poor painting after all. And not even a cheer for the oval!

Wow, that is a nice oval. Cheer!
