Silver Lake

18x24 in. oil on wood panel

This was a very special day kayaking on Silver Lake. I used a snap shot to create this painting and in the photo there was a light dusting of snow on the ground. So I drew a sketch of the image and did the painting using only the sketch. In doing this I was able to leave the color information behind and create my own mood. I might do the snow painting at another time but for now I tried something basic. I used only four colors to paint this image, ivory black, yellow ocher, and earth red plus white.
