Painting what you know
Rose Hips and Snow
I may have said this before but there is much to learn from painting what you know in a place that is familiar to you. As many of you know, I love water, trees and snow so I find myself continually re-visiting that motif and I find that there is much to learn from the experience. I get a kick out of making my eyes vibrate by using texture and odd colour combination's to achieve a certain effect. This scene is taken from Wellington Creek here at Manitou Beach, SK.
