Still here with snow and Manly, learning.

Snow sketch after Manley

I know I said this before, but it bears repeating: he used so much colour! I can’t get over it. I put it down and then see that the tint could, in fact, carry far more colour and it is still snow: pinks, and mauves, blues, of course, a lot of blues, but yellows too and even geens.

This sketch after Manly MacDonald, is 11×14 ” oil on canvas.

Here’s the quick sketch:

This is after Manly Macdonald. Working out how to describe snow. He was so great at this. Used lots and lots of of colour, it turns out!
