1374 First Frost
There has been heavy frosts this last week which looks pretty when you are looking at it through the window of a cosy room! It looks especially magical when the sun hits the crystals making them sparkle.
I dug out my acrylic paints that have been languishing in a drawer for ages, and they were perfect for this palette knife painting and less messy than oils. They were easier to work with because of the fast drying time which means that you can add many layers and do alterations fairly quickly without the risk of smudging the lower layers. I really had fun painting this one.
