Snowy Landscape Winter Fields Original Daily Oil Painting


"Quiet Cold"
oil on panel
6x6"

The sky was heavy with thick clouds but the dampness made it feel much colder than it was.  Just a bit of the sunset slid through the thickness before slipping beyond the horizon.
Winter.


Just 3 colors were used to make this and of course their variations.

First Snow Winter Impressionism Daily Painting


"First Snow"  orig post 2012
oil on panel 
6x6"

I could not wait to paint the first snow in the woods.  The sun was setting.  The few lingering leaves of fall "popped" off the blue shadows on the snow.  This contemporary impression has an abstract feel to it in my efforts to capture the moment without getting too detailed in all the trees.

I encourage you to notice how the painting becomes clearer as you step back a few feet rather than closely from your monitor.

Contemporary Impressionism Autumn Landscape Heidi Malott


"Autumn Highlights"
oil on panel
6x6"

Interesting, somehow I never posted this back in September.  Must have been a busy week!  I remember this morning well.  I was standing at the kitchen sink enjoying my second cup of coffee and noticed how beautiful the leaves looked with the sun filtering through the trees.  Missing the warm Autumn we had especially on this cold windy day.

Colorful Landscape Original Oil Painting


"Friday"

With the short, dark, cold days of winter I really wanted to play with color.  I spent way too long looking through digital images for inspiration.  I about ran out of time for the day.  I finally found some inspiration and worked on a few that went into some interesting directions.  Whew!

One of my Favorites from 2016 Rainy Fields Impressionist Oil Painting




"Rainy Fields"
from May 2016
oil on panel  6x6"

I snapped pictures of this scene out my car window in early April.  Spring came in like a lamb.  So warm and sunny.  I could not wait to paint that sky.  I love how the puddles in the foreground reflectes the setting sun in the dark field.

Just a few more days and I will be back in my studio painting.  Happy 2017!
