Creek Painting Progression

This is the photgraph of a nearby creek I took last winter.  Behind it is the sketch for the painting I'm going to show the progression of. 
The funny thing about showing the progression of a painting is, you have to remember to take a picture as each round is completed.  Sometimes I forget that part. 

This is after the underpainting and the furthest trees. 
I really had a great time with this painting because I used some tourquoise deep in the sky and in the creek.  It's not a color I usually use, but I love it so much, I know I'm going to be using it again.

here I'm starting to build up the snow and get some highlights and minor reflections going in the creek. 

This is where I forgot to stop and take a photo. 


But here's the finished painting. 

It's an 8 x 10 acrylic on masonite.
