I'm back to winter painting today. I have been wanting to paint a winter stream and loved this view with the sun on one bank and the other bank in shadow. It looked like a good challenge. I did a turpenoid wash underpainting using hard pastels to block in the main shapes.You can see in the left corner I was able to leave a lot of the underpainting showing. I usually cover it all up but this time I liked the colors so I left it.
