Light & Landscape: The Vermont Experience
Warm and cool.
Few seasons are as evocative in transition as autumn when it is changing to winter.
Transitions between seasons are often marked with subtle contrasts like the warm golden glow of the background against cool grays and blues in the foreground.
This stone bridge is off Rollin Road in North Bennington, Vermont. It’s position off the road makes it difficult to see in times other than late autumn and winter. Once the leaves are down, its solid construction and graceful arch make such a contrast with the surrounding landscape, that it is almost impossible not to see! A pre-winter snowstorm combined with below freezing temps keep the landscape looking wintery. The warm glow of morning sunlight filtering through a dense stand of trees presents the opportunity to introduce color and warmth into what could be a rather cold scene.
This is the second painting in this series that features a snow covered landscape – very unusual to have had this much snow at this time of year.
Sorry, this painting is sold.
