Chickadee on the Well: acrylic painting

“Chickadee on the Well” acrylic 16 X 24 inches

As a Michigan artist, one thing I have learned to paint is snow in various lights. This is a painting of a chickadee, sitting on a friend’s snow-covered well cover. I did get a bit experimental, using alizarin crimson in some of the snow shadows. Otherwise, I used my normal palette.

I love to watch the chickadees in the yard, and enjoyed depicting tyhe light and shadows seen on a sunny winter day.
