"Fire and Ice", plein air oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Fire and Ice", plein air oil painting, 8 x 10"
$495.00 framed, FREE S&H

Another view of the open water at Fish Creek Park, also done on black panel. I can't wait for a chinook to go out painting again. I just love painting plein air in the winter, because you can see all the colour -winter photos never do the scene justice.

Enjoy!

Wow, what a great painting! I love the sunlight on the snow and your expressive brushstrokes. Nice work! I too hope it warms up so you can get back out there!!

Very beautiful. Wonderful contrast between the sunlight and shadows. Love the muted colors of the "fire" against the brilliant cools of the snow and ice. Good job!

Love this one. Makes me wish I were in snow country to paint things like this. At least, for a little while.
