Snow in August?


Since we are not having a warm and dry summer this year, why not think of the proper winter then for a while? It was cold and white for almost a fortnight last February. And it was wonderful to watch the islanders having snow fun on their traditional horse-drawn sleighs. As well as the white rooftops of our village.

For a change, I decided to paint on cardboard this time, applying lots of layers of gesso first. Again, I used the limited palette; cadmium red, ultramarine, burnt umber and titanium white.

Thus it became "Hollum. Winter", acrylic, cardboard 30 x 25,5 cm. An image of the finished painting to be found in my gallery.
