More Snow Painting


My youngest daughter was out of school yesterday so she and I got out rambling and wound up in Poole Knob Wildlife Management Area. It was completely empty of people because of the snow and mud I believe. But it was gorgeous with the snow on it. We took a little time to throw some rocks on the pond and then I got to work. I enticed my daughter to go by promising her the opportunity to drive the truck. She did. And very well. I think she liked driving in the mud and snow and I see a four wheel drive vehicle somewhere in her future. Out of all the girls we have in our home, from ages 17 down to eleven, I explained to them all if anything happens to me and ya'll need to drive me somewhere, let the little one drive. She is right now the best in the bunch.
The only other person we saw in the area was the Game Warden. He only waved and kept going, so apparently painting there is allowed or because I was painting in the snow and mud thought I was mentally unstable and my daughter and I left before his back-up arrived.

Kevin,

The first thing that hit me was great color, which is interesting since that usually means bright or bold, but this is just great real color. It glows. Nice.

Thanks Gary. With the snow on the ground and everything else just perfect, it was hard to miss.

Thanks Steve. I credit it all to a three color palette. It makes it sooo much easier.

Really nice distribution of masses.
It makes me jealous I haven't seen the landscape this way.

Glad I found your Blog ... I was looking up the "Zorn" palette and ran across your site and was reading the comments. Beautiful work . I really like how you handle trees and your brush work makes the trees seem alive.

Glad I found it. Did you use alimited palette for this as well?

Kevin Menck said...

I did. It consists of Cad Lemon, Cad Scarlet, and Ultramarine Blue. Give it a try, I think you will like it.

I would give you the business about not posting but I am in a glass house right now and have been advised not to throw stones.
That cad scarlett packs a punch.

Hi Kevin!.... Stumbled upon your wonderful site simply by chance! I love the crisp colour... dynamically executed but simple subject matter... and your wonderfully humourous sharing of insights into your personal and painting lives.

I will definitely be back and now am a follower!

Good painting and warm regards,
Bruce Sherman

Online guitar lessons are a great way to learn guitar. Cheaper and more convenient than private studio lessons, the technology is now at a point where the difference in quality is nonexistent and actually has many advantages.
