"Winter Sycamore" oil on canvas, 12 x 16
While out one day looking for an area to spend some time painting, I came upon this Sycamore by the Poultney River. It was a very cold, but somewhat bright morning where the snow had a particular feeling of icy cold and the frost hung heavy in the trees and bushes. It was an interesting challenge trying to paint the light bark of the sycamore while retaining that "frosty" feeling, as well as a strong light pattern. A lot to think about in a small area, but fun trying to achieve. I think this area will require more attention in the following weeks of winter.
