A snowy day in Odeonsplatz, 30 x 40 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. [SOLD]
Usually I rely heavily on vibrant colors to make my paintings interesting, so this painting was a good way for me to challenge myself. The original scene includes similarly-colored buildings, snow, and sky; I wanted to have this monochromatic feeling come through without ending up with a boring painting. There’s one or two small details I want to tweak, but otherwise I’m pretty happy with the results.
November is Art Every Day Month! I’ll be posting a new small painting here each and every day. After they have had time to dry (a couple weeks), the original paintings will also appear in my Etsy shop.
