Snowy Scenes, Painting Progress

During the Winter Months, my colour palette began to naturally change to more Winter-esque colours and this was a reaction to a trip to Snowdon that I encountered. I was really happy with this painting as it was very quick, gestural and expressive. I used thin layers of acrylic paint and then use a spray gun to spray it off in certain areas which allows the ‘dripping’ effect of the paint.

Although this is quite a time consuming and laborious process, I have found this way of painting really enjoyable. I then worked in on some areas with a glazing agent, pearl spray paint (isn’t visible in photographs) to give a different kind of finish. I used a palette knife to apply the orange accents of paint, which I feel finishes the painting.

The rugged nature of the Welsh Landscape I feel is adequately achieved!
