I finished this painting this morning. I don’t think I over-worked it…that’s always the fear. Let me know what you think. Thanksgiving Day Snow – Oil on Linen – 11×14 Post navigation ← Happy Thanksgiving!Rock Wall at the Laderman’s → 7 thoughts on “Thanksgiving Day Snow – Fini” Robin Walker says: November 25, 2006 at 3:04 pm I love this painting. As someone who lives in the south (Dallas), and sees little snow, this painting evokes the exact feel of standing in a snowy forest. The blue seems a little too warm, but I like that, since most of my snow memories were made in Santa Fe, NM. Ed Terpening says: November 26, 2006 at 6:16 pm Thanks, Robin. Getting the color of the snow was a real challenge in that I wanted a clear separation of snow color from sky color. That’s why I leaned the sky color blue-green (even though it was much more blue) and the snow color towards blue-violet. Color separation is something I learned from Camille Przwodeck, one of my mentors. It’s turned out to be an incredibly valuable lesson–at least it meets the demands of my style for expressive color. gregg caudell says: December 20, 2006 at 12:27 pm Ed, your work is a welcome discovery. I especially appreciate your generous demonstrations. I learn from the picture of your pallette. Evidently you choose to use as much ‘pure’ color as possible as opposed to mixing white which appears to make your color work strong. I too admire Berberian and hope to meet him someday. I’m familiar with a Howard Terpening’s work, any connection? Ed Terpening says: December 20, 2006 at 3:54 pm Hi Greg, Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind comments! I hear that Ovanes will be teaching again next spring. The guy to contact is Ray Morrison [NOTE: I sent Ray’s email address to Greg but hesitate to leave hear publically. If you’d like to contact Ray regarding classess with Ovanes, let me know.]. I am of course familiar with Howard Terpening’s work–some people get us confused, but other than the same last name, no clear connection! He’s an amazing painter, so of course it’s nice that people think we may be related (to my knowledge, we’re not). Mary Sheehan Winn says: October 14, 2007 at 4:09 am I think you nailed it! It’s a beauty 😀 Arthur Rohling "Buddy" says: November 3, 2007 at 2:59 am Great art work. It is my background on the computer screen at home.
