SNOWY PASS - The 30th painting, Yay! - Last but one day for Giveaway

SNOWY PASS
ORIGINAL PAINTING BY SEA DEAN
6" x 8" Canvas Panel

This is the last submission for 30 Paintings in 30 Days. Yay! It also qualifies for this week's Daily Paintworks snow challenge. Plus I added my own challenge, to paint in a limited palette.

I used Ultramarine, Raw Sienna, Alizarin Crimson and Titanium White. It's surprising how much you can do with just 3 colours and white. I worked on the clouds in a new way, trying to create an interesting look. I made the foreground colours darker and less greyed to create distance. I paid attention to the late afternoon sun creating longer, more purple shadows. I allowed the orange sunlight to kiss the tops of the trees on the facing slope and put the road cut and the facing trees in deep shadow.

I rather enjoyed creating this painting which took several hours of total absorbtion.
