Pansies in the Snow
6x8in oil on canvas board 100.
As the snow melted, the pansies perked right back up. I guess living in a little igloo suited them.
Pansies bring just the perfect burst of color during our winter and I really enjoy them.
I used the knife and brush on this for some variations in texture.
Including the snow in the painting meant I had to work on a strong design linking the color and dark pattern to hold it together.
