Hearts in the Snow
I completed the painting of the hearts made in the snow by the UPS driver for my grandaughter. She requested it. I am pretty happy with it considering the photo was in gray tones from a phone.I feel the composition works. Your eye seems to go to the wood pile first then to the tracks in the snow and then to the objects to the right. The road helps the swing of the eye and the trees give stability. I feel there was depth to the woods and the Naples yellow in the snow area lends warms to the painting along with the brush and leaves on the trees in the background.
