The Woods in White – Karen Winters Daily Painting

December 16th, 2007

“The Woods in White” – 8 x 10 – oil on canvas on board

High in the mountains above Los Angeles (near Big Bear) we are finally getting snow. Of course it’s the snowmaking equipment at Snow Summit and Bear Mountain, but hey, we’ll take what we can get. I would love to ski again like I did when we were raising our family, but I’m more than a little concerned about falling and breaking something. If I did ski I’d have to stick to the green bunny slopes. More likely I’d find a place to paint the snow instead.

Scenes like this one – partly from an old reference photo and partly from imagination – have a lot in common with abstract paintings. This was painted with a limited palette of ultramarine blue, thalo blue, yellow ochre and a small amount of alizarin crimson. And titanium white, of course.

  1. I do like the last two snow pictures. The limited palette works well. I’ve only ever seen snow in Geelong once – just along a builidng, less than an inch. But the view on a train trip to Bendigo (snow had fallen between the Black Forest and Castlemaine)one time was magical – the world was in black and white and quite extraordinary like a negative photo.

  2. I enjoyed looking at these snow scenes. You have a great way of simplifying things
