It was a warm chinook day in January, so I walked to this location from my home on the farm. I set up my plein air easel and painted for a couple of hours. Such an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. This is a small piece that holds the value contrasts so well. Created en plein air and with a palate knife in order to work quickly as the lighting changes fast as the afternoon sun goes down on the prairies. The warm yellows of the tall canary grasses contrasted by the dark shadows on the snow really captures this scene beautifully. I really enjoy the textures in this piece that was created using a palette knife.
