Snowy barn, Petersham meadow 24cm x 30cm

I know I can never be taken seriously as a plein air painter without a lot of snow painting experience. Today I had a chance to have a go, and it was great fun. It took me a long time to find a spot with any colour. I visited one of my favourite locations, Petersham meadow. At first all I saw was white and grey, but eventually found this little scene, which made a decent composition. Will definitely be out as soon as the next snow arrives. 


  1. Nice one Ian. You've found some lovely colour on what was essentially a grey snowy day. I went the same way, favouring some notes of colour in subjects to lift things beyond the drab and dreary. You should be pleased with this piece and definitely do some more if and when we get another arctic blast!

  2. Thanks David. I look forward to seeing your snow pics.
