Winter landscape

"Winter landscape"

Acrylic and ink on paper, 20 Aug 2008

  I usually take a camera with me while traveling. In January 2002 I had to travel through the Salamanca foggy frosty mornings, 100 miles Northwest of Madrid. I took these pictures on the way as reference for future works. Six years later I made "Winter landscape", trying to recreate those mornings, painting first the backgorund, and then drawing the trees. I added a sun to warm it up a little.

   It's interesting to see, in the middle picture below, how the tree branches are trimmed up to a certain height. That's the line where the brave bulls bred there reach to eat the leaves.
