Last Sprouts Standing

Last Sprouts Standing (30cm x 40cm acrylic on mount board)

The forecast snow did arrive but we were fortunate not to have too much of it.  I am hoping soon to be painting some spring colour again!  This is the second of my snowy allotment pieces.  I just loved the shapes of the leaves against the snow and had fun trying to recreate this by ‘negatively painting ‘ –  by painting the spaces around and between the leaves and stalks rather than the leaves and stalks themselves.
