Winter Sunset Snow Scene

This was done at Anastasia Art, oil on 36"x26" stretched canvas. It took me a couple of months to do. It's got a cool color sun reflecting into warm color river. The sunset gives the snow a bit of coral red glow. Getting the snow, especially the ice and snow floating in the water, was a bit tricky. The floating ice was darker, but I couldn't use dirty color (Oxana's term. That means greys or muddy color I guess) Hmmm. I felt like I was a chemist, cooking up different colors and hoping they weren't "dirty". At end, I decided violet grey was a great color (I should buy a tube for myself at home).
