Old tree by creek in January snow

This painting was actually started several years ago and I finally got it finished!  Sometimes it takes me a while to figure out what I did wrong and make the corrections.

One of the artists I most admire is Richard Schmid.  In his book Alla Prima,  he said that muddy color always turns out to be a color that is an inappropriate temperature– a too cool color within a warm shadow.
