December Frost

December Frost

I love days like this, fresh and bright. Wrapped up nice and warm with only your face showing and the crunch of frosty earth under foot as you walk. I imagine a roaring fire and a hot mug of tea waiting for you when you return home.

This frosty landscape is an interesting one! The colours make it a little more challenging than your regular landscape with lots more shades of blue needed. As always, my attention was on creating small brush strokes to achieve the required level of details in the reference photo. I enjoyed it. I think you will too.

Happy painting,

Michael
