Frosted River

Oil on linen canvas
11 x 18 inches, 27 x 46 cm

It was a bit rainy today, but i wanted to paint this before all the snow is gone.
I would have taken this propably a bit further, but it became so dark that found it difficult to even get out of the forest.
It sure was fun :D

Nocturne: First Snow

Every plein air painter seems to be doing nocturnes, so I tought whatta hey, lets give it a shot.
This is painted in a total darkness only in the light of the headlamp. It was a very nice experience and luckily it rained some snow today and it enhanced the overall brilliance of the scenery.

New Plein-Aires

A Small Ditch

The Old Log

The Leaning Log

These are all painted in plein air. In the first two the raining was really intense, but my new pochade box hold the canvas dry quite nicely.
All are Oil on linen canvas.

The Big Wave

I painted these waves in Porkkala, Finland, just before it got too stormy.
It was a very windy day and the reason i chose to paint in there was of course - the big waves.
I waited a few weeks to have the windiest day possible. Easel fell down a few times, rain soaked the canvas, but i sure had fun. :)
