"Frozen Creek", plein air oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Frozen Creek", plein air oil painting, 8 x 10"
$495 framed, FREE S&H

I have made a decision to try to get outside to paint as often as possible this winter, and on Friday it was a balmy +1C and the sun was shining -what more could I ask for? I went down to Fish Creek Provincial Park at Voiter's Flats and did three paintings, with my painting buddy Jan keeping me company (he did 4 paintings, but forgot his box of acrylic paints, so he had to use my oils. I keep trying to get him to convert to oils and I think this day might have helped :) Everything is so different in the winter, from the colour of the light to the wonderful bounced light in the snow shadows -so much to learn to see.

Really beautiful, Sharon. I love the cool aqua of the creek against the other colors in the painting.

I'm wondering how you could hold a brush in such cold weather!

Beautiful! I love the warmth you can feel on the trees.

Thanks Virginia! Actually I had my painting gloves on and they were enough to keep my hands warm. Remember that degrees C is much warmer than the same number in F!

Thanks Cheryl! Now don't you wish you were with me??
