Wintry Mix

This 9x12 oil on canvas is a view of the stream cut in the opposite direction of the winter painting that I posted under "Wintry Blues".  There's a narrow foot bridge partway down the embankment that spans the gully.  This year the bridge as well as both sides of the bank are covered with snow and ice, making the crossing a bit treacherous.  I used cerulean blue, lemon yellow, and quinacridone red.  In the "Wintry Blues" painting I used cobalt blue, cadmium yellow, and quinacridone red.  For each winter painting, I've been selecting different blues, yellows and reds.  I also use titanium white.  It's fun to see what one can do with just a few colors.
