Bank Shadows; Oil on Canvas 11″ x 14″

Getting snow out here so it’s easier to get in the right mood to create snow scenes. Very cold though. Too cold to go plein air. I looked through sketches that I did a couple years ago at one of our local forest preserves and found this design. I had created a quick, little (6″ x 8″) oil at the time to lock in my impression of the scene. I used the sketch and the small study to help me plow through this painting. Now – let’s go larger.

Speaking of Plein Air (on location painting), at the request of my contact at Rock Valley College, we will be hosting a three day Plein Air  Workshop this summer in Rockford. Wednesday through Friday, August 7, 8  & 9, 2013. Thank you to Rock Valley for all the extra work to convince the Rockford Park District to cooperate in a partnership. This workshop will be held utilizing the revamped and improved outdoor gardens in Sinnissippi Park at the Nicholas Conservatory. More information will be posted. If you are interested in attending this workshop, please drop an email to me at tom@tomlindenart.com, and I will forward information as it is available.
