Last Light (Finished)

More winter paintings... In this one the main struggle is to keep all the warm colors found in sunset times brilliant yet maintain the feeling that this is a cold winter day. I loved all the play of calligraphic brushwork on the weed stalks and branches of little trees. Cadmium Scarlet was used thickly in the end to add the touches of red on top of the dark branches to indicate reflected light.
