"Silvery Light of Winter," oil on canvasboard, 8 x 10
For some reason I tend to like to do the bulk of my outdoor painting in the wintertime. An artist friend of mine says I pick a rough time of year to start such work, but that is what I enjoy. I like the diversity and subtlety of light that can be witnessed during any given winter season. The day I did this study happened to be quiet, overcast and gray day. With a closer look, I noticed that it was not a gray day, but a soft gray violet day with wonderful silver light.
