Afternoon Shadows; Oil on Canvas 12" x 24"

Afternoon Shadows; Oil on Canvas 12″ x 24″

After creating the small study, I decided to take it larger and alter the format. The lines work well in this wide format. It was fun  to work but not without its challenges. As I neared completion, I realized that I had two separate areas, the foreground and background. There was little cohesion. It did not appear as radical in the small study as it did here. To remedy the situation, I integrated elements of snow onto the branches and limbs of the trees in the background and that was enough to pull the areas together.

I currently have this painting displayed against a dark wall and boy do the colors of the woods pop!
