My Original Artwork-in-Progress (Update 5) ~ Alpine Hamlet

This is the fifth update of my Artwork-in-Progress ~ Alpine Hamlet (11″ x 14″) acrylic on canvas painting.  I’ve now finished the intermediate forest between the Sonnenspitze mountain and the Alpine Hamlet in the foreground, which I’ll work on next.  I enjoy painting wintertime scenes, especially fir trees covered in snow ~ and this painting’s kept me busy so far! 🙂

As the scene unfolds in front of me, I find it reveals details I’d never considered in my imagination at the beginning of the process.  My first idea, was the intermediate forest would be solid trees between the Sonnenspitze and the hamlet.  As it turned out, there’s a frozen stream down in the valley, and the trees share an open space that I hope gives a sense of depth between the hamlet and the Alpine Peaks ~ enjoy! ☼ 🙂
