A Kamloops Winter - 3X5ft Oil
Winter is over here in Kamloops but my passion to paint the beautiful snowy hills around our city has not! I used the two photos shown to compose the painting shown in its toned state. I wanted to feature some aspens trees combined with the rolling hills and warm winter sunlight.
My process started with a pencil sketch to work out an interesting design. I actually love this stage and always take my time doing it because as I've said before, a good road map gets you to where you want to go without getting lost! I drew it onto the canvas with thinned Raw Umber and let it dry before toning the canvas with a few of my favorite transparent pigments, Quinacridone Red, and Transparent Red Iron Oxide. I like using Quin Red under the cool snow passages. Next week, I move into Alla Prima painting!

If you are not familiar with the Gap Analysis, then you should. Management students like me study this analysis and believe me, it will help a lot going forward. It is not really hard to understand it, but you need to focus. I used to have a hard time using it, but after I got my things right, I was able to fully use it to my advantage. I hope that I can help you understand this analysis in the future.
