We all dream of a white Christmas and the pleasant sound of snow crunching underfoot as we walk across the fields that are carpeted and silent. Everything sparkles in this magic realm and childhood memories surround you like the crisp air against your skin.
This painting is mixed media on small box canvas which can be framed or hung as it is.
The underlying Acrylic has been accentuated by the subtle highlights and lowlights using oils with a palette knife adding texture to the snow and I couldn’t resist the addition of a few sparkles sprinkled across the snowy landscape. The scenery in this painting is across the deer park at Mount Edgcumbe Country Park, one of my favourite spots and a special place to visit here in southeast Cornish countryside.
