Thru the Woods

"Thru the Woods" is a 15 x 22 watercolor painting. I was inspired to paint this when I saw a Photo by Peter J. Markham, Loretto, MN. I obtained his permission to use the sleigh and horse from his photo. I then used trees and snow from photos of my yard and some photos I had taken from roadsides in my neighborhood to create the environment. I am happy with this painting. I use a variety of blacks mixed from my palette to get contrasts. Thank you Peter for the use of your photo.
