Joe Hush snow scene workshop at Lanchester Monday Art Group

 Joe demonstrating using a palette of ultramarine, light red, raw sienna, burnt sienna and burnt umber.

 Sky, background trees and foreground hedges.

Sheep, shepherd, dog and birds final touches.

My paintings

First is a made up scene and the second is from a sketch of the Cheviots from the Coquet Valley up to the middle distance with the track in the foreground made up. On the second painting an overall wash of red was applied to the whole paper before painting to warm up the scene- although it is not visible.
