Painting Maine woods and snow continued

Continuing in the studio...

I am continuing with my backyard snowscape in the studio.
work in progress
The dead tree in the middle was looking too much like a telephone pole.
Family Gathering - work in progress
16x20 oil on canvas board
I will continue to work on the details in the main line of pine trees. There is a pattern of sun light that jumps across the pines that I need to add. It should be fun but  challenging to do. Then the foreground will need work.  About half way there.

There is a nice sense of depth with the trees receding in the background (with just a touch of warm light behind them). The middle ground shadows and touches of light on the foreground trees really give a sense of the early morning light. Nice work!!
