"After the Snow Falls"

"After the Snow Falls" is a compilation of three separate images I took favorite elements from, and voila !

Roughly 20 hours went into putting it together, and I must say I surprised myself. It's a first attempt at a monochromatic approach. There's usually lots and lots of color in whatever I choose to paint...I guess I believed that color keeps the composition interesting. I'm learning that color plays a small role in an interesting composition.....

For me, one of the beauties of creative expression is the learning......the unexpected lessons are most interesting and fun!

The last time I used black pastel paper I wasn't sure I liked the outcome. This time - I'm pleased. What do you think? Please leave a comment to let me know. As always...thank you for stopping by !
