Playing with color, an indoor painting luxury

While I miss painting outside and the thrill of capturing light and color on-site, there are some niceties with painting in my studio. As I've been working on the painting of the Carroll Gardens street scene (see Works in Progress, and below), I've been able to play around with color combinations at my leisure - which is helpful because the church's stone facade in the late afternoon light has an incredible variety of hues... church6

And, I've finally started a snowy scene of Prospect Park...  I'll be posting updates in Works in Progress. It was a lot of fun to recreate the shimmery snow as the sun came out. It took some playing around with surprising color combinations to get the shadows and sunlit areas right. A little more refinement to be done here. I've gotten a couple of references to Monet by studio-mates and neighbors who've seen this painting so far! Sounds good to me!!
