I was taken by this image on the day of our first snow here in Northern Alberta: the bright colours of summer flowers each given a tall hat of snow, or a snow cap! The vivid colours of one season contrasting with the fresh softness of the next called out to be made into a painting. I know this is candy coloured, and it even sparkles thanks to Daniel Smith’s Amethyst, but I like the happy greeting for winter:)
A soft winter night with northern lights, stars and a full moon looks cozy if there is a cabin nestled in the trees. Judy poured the background colours and enhanced the frosty whites with negative painting.
Whew! We’ve had such a busy spring I can’t remember which paintings I’ve posted. I don’t think I would have posted Cattail Dance. It was a demo from our negative painting course in Fairview this April. See how the dark snow behind the frost on the cattails makes the brights stand out?
