READING GUILD OF ARTISTS

Picture of the Month

December 2017
by Jenny Atkins

Snow Scene
Oils
61 x 91cm

I have chosen Jenny's 'Snow Scene' from her four paintings of trees in the gallery, though I like them all equally.

But it's December and so the 'Snow Scene' has to be my choice. Using blues, purples, white and rust, Jenny has captured the strangely coloured light flooding a snowy landscape, cleverly invoking the cold and dark of the season. Using pale blue for the branches, and the darker blue for the twisted winter leaves, Jenny creates a satisfying series of shapes against the cool winter landscape. But it is worth looking at all of Jenny's tree paintings, be it cold winter or colour-filled autumn. Here is an artist clearly reacting to the excitement of the pastoral scenes she loves to record.

Chosen from our Online Art Gallery by Carole Stephens
