Afternoon Snow Storm Original Pastel Painting Snowy Winter Day
"Afternoon Snow Storm"
Pastels ACEO (2.5" x 3.5") on sand paper
I was driving Friday afternoon during a snow storm. I was amazed when I saw the sun still visible in the sky, though it was shrouded in a snowy haze that dimmed it's light. It was surrounded by dark blue and purple clouds. The fine snow falling and blowing around faded all the details of the landscape. It was so atmospheric...so moody. I couldn't wait to get home and paint it! I thought pastels would be ideal to express the mood.
