Sun and snow again yesterday


Another lovely one, Rachel - Happy Christmas to you too!

Really beautiful and a lovely colour palette, yes, that the sky is particularly good

Excellent painting Rachel , Merry Christmas to you .

Gorgeous sky - like your style of painting - Happy Christmas and New Year

Another exceptional representation Rachel, you’ve got these sky jobs cracked…

Great atmospheric painting Rachel. Merry Xmas to you.

Wonderful Rachel Love the orange streaks of light.

Thank you all for such great comments - really is appreciated, thanks Alan, I sometimes feel it’s me that’s cracked 🧐!

Nice work. Technical question: at what stage did you add the orange/yellow or did you use the lemon as a base and build up over it?Hard to get that orange sun bleeding through the clouds - terrific effect and nice echo at the base of the hedge.

Just keep getting better Rachel! Superb.

Thank you Sarah, Fiona and Chris- really encouraging. Chris the yellow/orange was added at the end. I was faced most of the morning with a grey sky, it wasn’t until the sun peaked through the cloud just after sunrise that the cloud began to clear and there was the beautiful yellow reflected from the sun. I scraped that part of the painting back, and added the orange then the yellow, as the sun came through - I think it was more luck than judgement 🙈!!.... I hope this helps

Thanks for that, Rachel - luck always plays a big part in my paintings. Lovely image. ICheers C

Very good, nice contrast between the warmth in the sky and the cold, cold earth.

I keep returning to your work Rachel; I've had all the snow I need thanks, but I empathise with your sentiments. I like the touch of fire in the sky. Just right. Happy New Year. John

Thankyou Chris, Stephen and John for the lovely compliments so appreciated, and Happy New Year to you also John - all the best.

Hang on Studio Wall

Took advantage of the one morning of Snow yesterday, wish we would have more!! Cold and windy - oil on board Happy Christmas Everybody and all best wishes for the new year 🍾
