Original Creation

Winter’s Peace

ForestVueGallery 15 Sep 2020

This was inspired by Michael Chapman who can be found on Facebook. He is the first I’ve seen to add footsteps in the snow.
I enjoyed this one very much after I got past the shelf paper stage. The next one will be easier now that I’ve figured out the compass work with the help of Thom Stevens on YouTube https://youtu.be/AiErcURNdR8
I highly recommend the “Duck 20” x 30’ shelf liner that can be purchased at Lowe’s. I found it easier to work with than contact paper and I didn’t have paint bleed under around the edges.
This was hard to photograph. The shadows are a dark bluish shade in the painting.

Great idea adding those footprints there! This is a really beautiful painting, well done.

Beautiful job. Great branch and shadow work. Color contrast to foreground also excellent. Very nice.

Thank you lightsnow and Ajcus for your kind comments. 😊 This was a joy to paint.

The marks on the ground are very nice

Thank you, I like the effect also and it’s easy to do.
