An Arctic Winter Day

Tom0779 12 Sep 2021

An other one from season 26, so there are 3 more to do.
I ran out of the firm white I had, only left was a soft budget white and thus I feel this painting is a disaster over all. Sorry for sharing such a bad painting, but I want to do the complete season 26 and I so not want to do this again.
Canvas size is 40 x 50 cm. Took me 3 hours to complete. It has been the first time I did 2 oil paintings within 2 days. Maybe I will do another 2 - 3 this year.

Great winter scape Tom!Love he reflections!Cheers,P

You are a hard critic on yourself. I have also been out of firm white and used "bargain" paints and was less than happy with my end result. However others really enjoyed it and thought it was lovely. I would not say this is a disaster at all. It is quite nice. Sometimes using inferior materials forces us to adapt as an artist, so that is valuable at least! I used a couple of budget canvases once and could not blend my paints well. I deemed them a disaster also. I actually sold them to a lady who absolutely loved them. So.....food for thought :)

A disaster? Hardly. It's great. You're just too close to it at this point. Put it aside and look at it again in a few days. I guarantee you. You won't scrap it. It's really very good.

I agree w Alex_Ander! I keep thinking that one day I will be able to do a mountain that I will be proud of. Enjoy

Thanks flippergirl for your encouraging words. I think I am a very methodical person and here I couldn't realize the concrete plan I had due to the white. But I am more happy today, as Alex_Ander said. Just give a few time.
