We have been lucky to have had snow on the ground for about 10 days now. This is one I painted a couple of days ago not far from Arger Fen in Suffolk.
The light changed constantly while I was painting. When the sun was in I worked on the sky and corrected the drawing, when the sun was out I worked on the snow with it’s enticing blue shadows. In the middle distance you can see the sun-lit trunks of the silver birches in Cowlin’s Wood.
It is in oil on stretched linen canvas and measures 12 x 24 inches, 30.5 x 61cm.
