December is almost here which means that even those with the most scrooge like tendencies can no longer avoid the fact that Christmas is coming! Amongst the hustle and bustle of the last minute shopping, catching up with family members and preparing for the most important meal of the year, there is a certain sense of serenity and beauty to be found if you take a moment to look around you at this magical time. The unique appearance of nature at wintertime also captures the imagination of many artists and Art2Arts is currently filled with more and more winter wonderland landscapes to enjoy. Whether you are a fan of this style of painting of if you are looking for a subtle way to decorate your home this Christmas period, take a look at some of the frosty scenes available at our online art gallery.
This oil painting for sale by Elizabeth Williams captures a scene that still has remnants of the natural colour palette left over from autumn, just as the white wash of the winter snow starts to set in. The oil paint is utilised for its soft properties, creating a landscape that is blended for a smooth finish with a dramatic background, contrasting with the sharpness of the bare, leafless trees. Anyone heading down this lane in real life would certainly stop for a moment to appreciate the beauty of this wonderful environment.
While Wintry Lane depicts a landscape that is just seeing the start of the winter weather, Winter Mountain River shows us a land that is fully cast by the wrath of Jack Frost! The mountain range in the background is so rugged that it mimics the ice laden river in front of it, creating a breath-taking image that reminds us of the power of nature.
Although not technically a landscape, we couldn’t resist highlighting this wonderful piece of original art by Jenny Morgan. No beast is as synonymous with the winter period as the mighty stag and when this regal creature is placed on a backdrop so awe inspiring as this peaceful scene, the finished piece is something to be treasured.
Original artist, Robert Jackson is certainly inspired by the change in seasons and following on from a fantastic series of autumn paintings comes an equally as stunning winter offering. Described as being influenced by the ‘contrast of hot and cold within nature’, there is no other difference quite as large as that of the winter weather and the flickering flames of fire!
