More snow, more painting

  I started this earlier today before shoveling. Those lumps behind the street lamp are our cars. They still look like that. I’ve never seen a snow storm like this.  

I painted this on a light blue Fabriano Tiziano pastel paper. The blue comes through a little on the snow. My colors were Prussian blue, Brown Madder, and titanium white. There is a minuscule touch of lemon yellow mixed with those colors to get the light bulb.

I wish I had deviated from reality more and positioned the street lamp a little further left and the tree further right. Anyway, here’s a closeup:

    And it is still snowing! Beautiful way to document this tremendous snow storm!

    There’s a hush to your paintings today, Corey, if that’s technically possible. Love this one (though relieved our cars haven’t turned into snow mountains like yours. Today’s a no-snow day in Amherst . . . thank goodness, just a low gray sky also good for painting if only I knew how.) You might have a few paintings days ahead, lucky you. Lucky me: I can enjoy your paintings and your snowstorm from afar without needing boots.
