Sterling Edwards Paintalong – Evening Winter Landscape

Rather enjoyed this one.    Having done a few of these now I’m getting the hang of substituting in my colors and brushes instead of his.   He has his own line of bristle brushes to give a nice ragged effect for trees and grasses.   I substitute in my synthetic flat brush for this reasonably successfully.  Ditto for colors.  He uses the Maimeri Blu brand and I do various conversions e.g.  brown stil de grain = burnt sienna,  primary blue cyan = cobalt blue.

Intermediate steps are below.

Some foreground trees – stage 2 darks.

Stage 4 – final detail.  Branches on the trees, more snow shadows and some leaf detail.
