This 16x20 oil on canvas was painted from a photograph taken by my sister last winter. You'll notice that the cardinal is just off center and takes a position in the upper 1/3 of the canvas. I used a blend of sap green, phathogreen green and blue to give the needles the blueish cast of the Colorado Blue Spruce.

This photo does not show the detail given to the snow.
