More Snow in England - Allan Kirk
I painted this scene a while ago. It's another of Allan's terrific exercises .... I love his impressionistic approach, especially for buildings - as mine always tend to be mighty stiff. BTW, Allan has started a wonderful blog (http://tarnincolour.blogspot.com/). This week he's posted some lessons on shadows and painting old buildings in the sunshine --- check it out!
The workshop last night went well -- but ended, naturally, pretty late, so today I am dragging--big time! I'm waiting for the coffee to finish perking, as I think it's going to be another caffeine IV day ...
The winds howled and howled yesterday! And despite the sun, it was so very cold and terribly uncomfortable. We remained in our mobile unit office space despite the threatening winds and clacking trees. Things are supposed to improve somewhat today.....fingers are crossed!
Stay warm, stay safe, and have a cup of coffee with me!
