"CLEAR CREEK," 10132, daily painter original landscape © Carol Nelson Fine Art


Since everyone is complaining about the hot weather, I thought I'd do this little winter scene to cool things down. Clear Creek is an actual river in Colorado that comes roaring down the mountain and runs through Golden, CO, the home of Coors Beer.

This painting is on a 6x6 panel. I used a palette knife to glob on lots of Titanium white for those snow banks. For purchase information, please click here to go to my website.

You've really achieved a sense of cold in this painting. I think painting it with the palette knife was a wonderful choice. That snow looks so real and the water looks frigid. It's a beautiful painting.
