Snow - Outlook Clearer
The Side with Snow (work in progress)
More information came to light today about the "winter" show. I now have a clearer idea of what will be needed and how much work I need to get done by November.
I've been mulling over how I wanted to this painting to be; mulling so much that it's taken until today to get it started. It's a view from the Tyne Bridge looking down on the buildings of The Side; a view I've tackled many times before, but never with snow. It always surprises me that the end result is so different from each previous painting of the same subject. At the moment, I'm a little puzzled by the overall look of the painting. Not at all like my usual style, but as the work progresses, I dare say it'll fall more into line.
