This is post #11 in this mini series of snow scenes. In terms of technique, it’s the most demanding of all so far in this series. Although it’s only 10 by 13 inches ( or 25 by 33 cm ) it was made difficult by 2 factors. First, when the air temperature is close to […]

Another contemporary painter tackles the theme of snow in this contrasty painting, called “Ten Below”. There’s something so American about the title that you might leap to the conclusion that the artist was from the USA. And you’d be absolutely right. His early years were spent in Spain, however. Ten Below He worked as a […]

Snow Scenes #9 – Christmas Edition 0

After looking at paintings of snow scenes created by artists who lived many years ago, it’s time to look at some pictures that have been painted by contemporary artists. What these people have in common is that, apart from being superb concept artists, they are also all featured in the blogroll (see left), and in […]

(1849 – 1915) His genre was definitely horses. Riding Shotgun The image below shows why the man on the back of the sledge was carrying a large […]

This is post #5 in this mini series of Yule snow scenes, and today’s artist is T.F.Simon, a prolific painter and printmaker from Czechoslovakia who lived between 1877 and 1942. Today is the first time I’d ever heard of him! I just stumbled onto a website devoted to him, while looking for somebody else. (Click […]

Peder Mork Mønsted 1

The fourth snow themed painting in this series is by a favourite of mine, the Danish artist Peder Mork Mønsted, who lived a long and fruitful life as a painter from 1859 to 1941. This canvas dates from 1918, and goes to show that a snow scene does not necessarily have to be rendered in […]
