Winter sunrise

oil on linen 9" x 12"
A painting of a special time of day. I have photographed this painting several times for the blog, and the blue on the building keeps getting very saturated. The original is a little more purple, and sits back on the linen. I loved the colors in the snow and sky, and the richness of the snow shadow. I like how the colors shift in the penumbra around the sun. I think the painting done larger would need a more careful perspective drawing of the house. As usual, I will put it up on my long shelf to look at for a while, and thus learn to see what it needs. (Updated picture reposted 3/8/09)
