First snow, inktense blocks, update


First Snow, finished and cropped
I decided to add a few more marks, a little white gouache to add more direction to the snow and  to create a rising moon.   Then I cropped it.

One of the advantages of the inktense is that no colour at all lifted to contaminate the white of the gouache.

 I miss the ability to crop when I work on canvas.

Better?   That's it anyway.

I liked the original, but what a difference a crop makes! Superb.

thank you all :>)

Jennifer I think you clicked the right thing :>)

and Margo I totally agree - cropping can make a very ordinary painting really work - trouble is, I rarely work to standard sizes so framing isn't cheap!

As Margo says, the original was beautiful yet the crop makes such a difference. How lovely it is...

Vivien, I have been trying to leave a comment on your blog for a week but no luck. Hopefully this one will post.

I absolutely love your birch scenes with Inktense! Very striking and effective.

Wow I love it. It's very dramatic and I love the expressive colors and movement in the piece. Beautiful work.
