Although I have slowed down for the next few weeks, due to the holidays, I am still working occasionally to get some art in. I am working right now on another miniature. This one is 4"x4", and a snow scene with a barn. This is the beginning part of my painting process on it. I have gessoed the whole of it, sides as well, as it is a frameless masonite board base. I put in the beginnings of the blue sky and clouds and then added washes of brown to get my barn and fences positioned. I might do a bit of changing on the positions before I am done, but this is how I start a landscape, whether it is large or small. I hope to have this painting finished within the week, if time and the holidays will allow!
