An Online Artist's Coop for Artists who Paint on Location
Last month while staying at friend's farm in Northern Ontario for a few days, I snowshoed into the bush looking for some fresh snow to paint.
After an hour of tough slogging, I literally stumbled across the Snake River as it wound its way into a frozen lake. The light was pretty flat until late in the day when the clouds suddenly thinned out and gave me a 30 minute window of very dramatic light that had a strange greenish yellow tinge to it.
I love these unusual 'turnerseque' light effects when they happen in the sky. In fact, a lot of the time when I stiff on a scene
sketch- I'll look up and just do the sky.
