Still snow? and more negative painting

Field of Snow


Even though the trees are trying to blossom, the weather has been reminding us that it is still winter. 
Even though I don't like being cold, I do enjoy capturing the colors of snow and the world in winter.
The above painting was done from a photograph from a friend of mine that was excited to share her photos of snow with me. 

She also shared several other photographs with me but I really loved one of an old farmhouse so had to paint it.

Old Farmhouse

It reminded me of an old abandoned farm close to where I grew up in Utah.

This past week I have also been working on more negative painting. I am demonstrating the technique next weekend at Opus Art Supplies on Granville Island. I am doing 2 - two hour demonstrations and I am trying to get quicker with my technique. I tend to get lost in my painting and like to take my time. So I will usually spend hours enjoying the process.  I also know that I will be explaining my process and answering questions while painting so it helps for me to be prepared.
I was to originally do one demonstration. I requested that I do the demo on a Friday and Opus usually has them on Saturdays so they informed me that the demo might not fill. However, I was excited to discover that not only had it filled, but there was enough for a second demo. So now I am doing 2.

Here is the painting I have been working on for practice and since I enjoyed the last magnolias so much, that what I chose to do:

Magnolia
