Snow Day, oil 18 x 24" by Jill Peckelun


Snow Day

This is a studio piece worked up from a plein air sketch I did.  Appropriately enough I worked on it during a snow fall kind of day.  It was such a still quiet cold day.  I was enthralled with the tunnel of thick trees and the road passing by me and between the dark trees.  I was surprised at how very little white I used for the snow itself- only needed it for the road.

I really like that strip of sunlight shining through - it gives a sense that Spring is right around the corner!
