snowed in

i finished this yesterday. not sure why i'm thinking about snow and pale landscape colours in summer . . . i guess melbourne is still throwing in the odd freezing day.
it's a bit sketchier than usual in the hills. i put a layer of semi-transparent acrylic over the background in the bottom part which gives the texture more depth. off to get some more work done.
enjoy the weekend.

i love the added depth and find your color choices is pale and cold here (and snowing) and the bit of orange in this piece makes it seem warm to me...a burst of color in just the right juicy shade!
