"Passage"


I painted this rather quickly before the snow fell. When I arrived the sun was bright and there were beautiful cool dramatic shadows. Although I set up my easel fast, a thick blanket of dark clouds rolled in and changed the lighting completely to warm shadows (which I keyed up) and compressed values. If I'm not too lazy, I'll walk back to this same spot and paint it again as I'm sure it's now under a heavy layer of snow.

I really like this painting. Yellow is such a difficult colour to work in, but I also like to use a variety of yellows in skies and to create atmosphere. This is a very happy painting.
