Bluebell Glade in acrylics

This painting start out as a snow scene with a partly frozen river but it was not working so I changed it completely and painted a bluebell scene. The only element that I used from the reference photo was the placement of the river.    I also tried out a new colour for the trees  - Transparent Red Oxide.  Really like it and when mixed with Ultramarine Blue it creates a interesting black.   Really pleased with how this one turned out.

Bluebell Glade measures 6 x 6 inches and is painted on Ampersand Gessobord Panel.
