The largest "snow, sky, reflection" piece ever!
I've had this piece sitting around my studio
for a couple months now, in the orange under
painting stage. This week I decided to take a
break from the gigantic Triptych and work on
it. This is the progression, from the orange under
painting, (minus one session where I laid in the
cooler colors over the orange) and then as I worked
through the painting yesterday:

Next, I'll increase the darker areas and the contrast
throughout. Then I'll put in some glazes to unify and
push back some areas and finally some highlights. In
other words the space within the image should be more
vast when all is said and done.

Still trying to nail down the texture in the snow slope...oh and just wanted to squeeze in all three panels to show the full triptych.
