Yosemite's snow - oil painting

During our trip to the US this year, we went in the Yosemite National Park for a few days. The beauty and the scale of nature are hard to describe.

We went on a walk to see the Giant Sequoia. I was pleased to find places where the snow was still there. I havested plenty of subjects with my digital camera.

Yosemite's Snow - Oil on canvas (12" x 10") by Benoit Philippe

In order to get luminous colours, I painted the white canvas with a coat of vermillion acrylic paint before starting.
