An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell
Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge
Day Twenty Six

'Twenty Nine Degrees'
Leslie Saeta's Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge
Day Twenty Six

Oil on Panel
6 x 6

This is a view that is similar to the Challenge Twenty Five painting.
The difference is that it was painted four hours later, and
the temperature was twelve degrees higher.  I liked the way
just a tiny bit of sun brought some warmth into the painting.
I also felt that this painting was a bit looser with the brushwork.

Here's a comparison shot of the two paintings:

                                Seventeen Degrees         Twenty Nine Degrees                                

All of my paintings for this Challenge will be done in a 6 x 6 format,
and my main goal while painting from life
something which will only benefit my work.

work of the participating artists, just visit her blog:

First, I love the arch & composition on both of these. That feeling of standing & looking out, really nice. I also like both of these for different reasons. Like the highlights & warmth in the 2nd one that the sun adds, but also like the dark points & shadows in the original. I may borrow your idea of painting/repainting the same visual scene to depict the two different moods. Like it!

Bravo - you tackled a big one! I like how the evergreen bends..with the weight of the snow and you definitely made it look colder - amazing how subtle changes make a big difference! Good ONE!

It's so fun to see these two paintings together. Each is beautiful in its own right, and it's awesome to see the subtle changes. Bravo, Claire!

I love seeing the two together. Those subtle shifts in light (and brushwork) make such a big difference.
great work.
