"Winter White" © #Canyondechelly #laurawambsgans
This painting is all about the contrast of the tree dressed in it's winter white coat against the shadowed stone wall behind. It was an exercise in exploring high contrast and enabled me to decide whether this idea might work for a larger painting. I have lived with this little guy in the studio for a few weeks and instead of growing tired of it, every day I become more fond. So it's passed the test of time and a larger composition within the same story of contrast is painting waiting to be painted.
