Columbia - Winter View
Here is a small painting that I recently finished for Prof. Leah Miller at USC. She requested a city-scape of Columbia because she likes local art. So I figured a winter scene was the most appropriate. This is a view of Columbia from the Gervais Street Bridge. I used mainly a pallet knife for this painting, but some brush work also. An effective technique for creating winer trees is scraping into wet paint. So with a carefully chosen underpainting color, scraping through to that layer with a narrow point, such as that of a brush's end or dull pencil will create that wintery tree effect.
