Plein Air Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell
100 Paintings in 100 Days Challenge
'Inspirations from a Back Yard'

'Flurries on the Ridge'
Oil  6 x 8

Day 66

What a surprise to wake up one morning to the sight of
snow flurries coming in over the mountain ridge.  The
flurries provided the perfect atmosphere for painting 
this weathered old pine tree, which looked as if had already
withstood many a storm.

I was sure I had left a comment...but it isn't here so I will repost! This has a beautiful japanesse-like simplicity to the composition and the high key choice gives you the atmosphere you were going for...very successful, Claire!
