Winter scene of a River and Cabin

As you can tell by now I love water, I love painting cabins and landscapes with stormy skies. They are my absolute favourite things to paint. The reference picture I loosely based this one on is from pixabay.com.

(First layers of colour)

I loved the colours in this particular painting are very calming. My favourite combinations to use at the moment are yellow ochre, blue and greens. Again I decided to put a stormy sky in there as well.

(Determining the composition of the painting)

Here I am starting to add more layers and details into the painting. Figuring out where points of interest are going to be is probably the hardest part of painting. Once you know where all the objects sit you can start adding shadows and highlights and details to the painting. By adding details such as highlights and shadows this gives the painting depth and interest. The reflections on the water really make it seem as though it’s real.
