Judy painted this scene in order to capture the glow of the shadow of the snow. On a bright day, snow shadows can be astonishing colours: blue, purple, or this particular luminescent shade of grey. There it is in the clouds as well, that translucence that comes out of the brightest of whites.
Our first Grade Six class of this year at Artists at School was most delightfully. They took great pleasure and artistic care in creating these beautiful forests using some advanced techniques. Negative painting, shading and loose sketching are all fairly difficult to do one at a time, never mind all at once with the new medium of water soluble pencil. Well done!
More cards from the Pleasant View Painters! They really caught the idea of strong contrasts in the moonlight.
Judy took a trip to Southern Ontario in October, just in time to catch the splendid display of fall colours. Inspired for a painting, she did change the oak trees to more local poplars, but the result is all about the glorious colours. This painting is very large and very long, and it would warm up any room in any season with a glint of fall.
Fall is arguably the prettiest season. Maybe that’s because it changes so fast and its beauty is at the whim of the weather. Judy captured a moment of summer sun and autumn shadows at a campsite in B.C. The harbinger colours are emerging in the undergrowth and creating a magical spray of adornment for the weathered old poplars and birch.
