This is the final painting in the four seasons Aspens series. A cool palette leads you into a chilly, wintry day. The light is diffused and softly falling snow clings to the bark of the trees and the ground. Cool shadows are made up of blues, beige and violet and the sky is a mixture of blues with hints of white. I can imagine being bundled up in layers against the cold surrounded by quiet as the snow gently envelopes me.
Throughout the series, I envisioned the temperature, light and colors in my mind to translate them onto paper. This helped me to capture the feeling of the landscape to convey the shifting seasons.
