Finished a Commission, July 29, 2010

West Texas Cabin

Just finished this commission for a wonderful couple I met at the Kennedale Art Festival last Spring.  I’ve worked throughout the summer, between trips, trying to get this one done.  I’m happy with the snowy atmosphere and cool colors.  This is probably my first serious snow scene in watercolor.  I hope to work on some more in the not-too-distant future.

Thanks for reading.

    Thank you, Francis and Alonso. I’m going to try to do some more snowscapes when I get to Colorado later. I’m captivated at the magic of watercolor when trying to capture shadows in snowy settings. I hope I can learn a few more things while I’m there.

    This is beautiful. I like where you chose to place the warm colors, in and amongst the living things or reflectied from them. Also the warmth of the cabin seems to have a positive draw to it amongst all this cold. Great snow painting, David.

    Thank you, Leslie. I was intimidated by the shadows, but hoped I could create some kind of vibrancy by alternating between warms and cools. Thank you for your observation and kind comments.
