Late Snow by Marriet

A late snow fell in Virginia covering the Kwanzan cherry blossoms that had just emerged announcing the arrival of Spring. A momentary setback. The dusting was gone by noon.

I started drawing for my son, who was fascinated with it as a child. I took a few classes in colored pencil and watercolor and found the company to be exceptional, and have loved the art world since.

    Love the composition, the angle. The snow looks so real!!!

  • Thank you aquaarte. I layered gouache on top of the cherry in small strokes and then put in a light wash of pink (my art instructors’ suggestion) to make it look as if the petals were reflected in the snow. The composition is called a medallion, one of 12 basic compositions you can do. I am happy with it.

    Marriet this is an incredible painting :-) The painstaking detail you’ve put in it must have taken some considerable time! What size is it? I think is is really exquisite!

  • Thank you very much for your comment, Constance! The painting is about 24" X 36". The detail is in the snow, done one stroke at a time here, but otherwise I tend to simplify shapes similar to silk screening. I am very happy that you find it passable! Thanks again.")

    This is a beautiful painting! I can see why it made the home page!

  • Thank you, Angie. I started it and was about to throw it away. My art teacher at the time, Kay, said, “Don’t. It’s very common to reach a certain point and want to chuck it. But keep with it.” She was right. I am glad that I kept this one!

    oxymoron winter/spring feel here the weather seems confused like this human world is too

  • I know I am! It was confusing to have daffodils blooming everywhere and then an inch of snow fell and covered the blossoms, but it was also beautiful and short lived and the world was green again in no time!

    A beautiful painting, Marriet, especially sending forth the message that spring is unstoppable, in spite of setbacks!

  • Sorry so late to reply Pat. Thank you very much for the great comment! Yes, though late this year, it is coming and because it was so cold will be even more beautiful! Looking forward to it!
