Winter Trees. An original acrylic on canvas painting, by Waterways Artist Jan Vallance. Short Landscape Canvas 24″ x 28″ and 1″ deep.
The inspiration behind the original Winter Trees painting.
The season I paint the most. I love the otherworldliness that winter and the snow brings. Like Autumn Trees, this painting is inspired by a walk I do on the other side of the canal from the towpath. It is not based on one particular view, but the feeling of the walk and memories, enhanced with the joy of painting.
It is varnished for protection with a low sheen varnish.
The paint on this picture is built up in layers. It includes gold paint and my trademark swirls. Unfortunately the gold doesn’t show up very well in the photos. The paint is carried on down the sides of the canvas so there is no need for framing, though I think that a good deep frame enhances the picture.
