'March Evening' oil, 12x16 © Marc R. Hanson '10
Ran out tonight for what should have been a magnificent reddish sundown on the snow. But... of course Mother Nature had other plans. A cloud bank ran interference in the last minutes of the game and cut my intended light off despite my pleading. I'm working up a 30x40 of a scene from this same location, but from last week when we had a full moon. I wanted to get that last minute light to the east. This will be a big help regardless. I spent about an hour on this one. IF the light had come, I would have been altering color at lightning speed for another 15 minutes I imagine.
