8x6in oil on canvas $125. SOLD
My daughter sent me some photos after the huge
snowfall they experienced last weekend.
This is a composite of a couple of the images.
Here is a black and white to show the value of
the snow in the shadow. A middle value counts
as a dark - so even though it is a snow painting,
mine is 3/4 dark pattern
At the Guild I have a board with the following
guide for division of light and dark patterns in
a painting. It can be helpful. These are
approximations, but you can get the drift. It
helps to have a dominant light or dark pattern.

I am a painter living in Las Cruces, NM. After many years as an illustrator I turned to fine art to develop my own artistic voice. I currently teach talented and enthusiastic artists in oil, acrylic and egg tempera painting. I am also a member of the Artist Guild of Southern New Mexico.
