Brown Winter by DelayedReality

/ / ©2005-2015 DelayedReality
Yeah, so I haven't actually finished a painting in a long time. But I was looking back (fondly) on some old winter scenes in upstate NY...And this one in particular that was taken behind my house near the stream.

So I changed the point of view in my mind from "standing on the shoreline" to "standing in the stream"

Decided to use brown-tinted colours...Only because I am cheap and ran out of blue, purple and red paints. Hehehe.

Make do with what you have, right?
Hey, I even added some glitter for a nice effect that you can't catch on the computer. Makes the snow sparkle a bit.

Acrylics. Canvas.

I am stunned by the variation you've achieved with only one color. Your pine trees look like the deepest green rather than a shade of brown! The feeling is of dim,late twilight, not monochrome. Amazing work!

You are now cursed. You must send this on or you will be killed. Tonight at 12:00am, by Bloody Mary. This is no joke. So don't think you can quickly get out of it and delete it now because Bloody Mary will come to you if you do not send this on. She will slit your throat and your wrists and pull your eyeballs out with a fork. And then hang your dead corpse in your bedroom cupboard or put you under your bed. What's your parents going to do when they find you dead? Won't be funny then, will it? Don't think this is a fake and it's all put on to scare you because your wrong, so very wrong. Want to hear of some of the sad, sad people who lost their lives or have been seriously hurt by this email?

CASE ONE -
Annalise [Surname Removed] :She got this email. Rubbish she thought. She deleted it. And now, Annalise dead.

CASE TWO -
Louise [Surname Removed]: She sent this to only 4 people and when she woke up in the morning her wrists had deep lacerations on each. Luckily there was no pain felt, though she is scarred for life.

CASE THREE -
Thomas [Surname Removed]: He sent this to 5 people. Big mistake. The night Thomas was lying in his bed watching T.V. The clock shows '12:01am'. The T.V misteriously flickered off and Thomas's bedroom lamp flashed on and off several times. It went pitch black, Thomas looked to the left of him and there she was, Bloody Mary standing in white rags. Blood everywhere with a knife in her hand then disappeared. The biggest fright of Thomas's life.

Warning... NEVER look in a mirror and repeat -'Bloody Mary.Bloody Mary.' Bloody Mary... I KILLED YOUR SON' Is it the end for you tonight! YOU ARE NOW CURSED

We strongly advise you to send this email on. It is seriously NO JOKE. We don't want to see another life wasted. ITS YOUR CHOICE... WANNA DIE TONIGHT? If you send this email to...

NO PEOPLE - You're going to die.

1-5 PEOPLE - You're going to either get hurt or get the biggest fright of your life.

5-15 PEOPLE - You will bring your family bad luck and someone close to you will die.

15 -25 OR MORE PEOPLE - You are safe from Bloody Mary

Hey I was wondering what colours did you use to make this? Its awesome by the way.

:icondelayedreality:
DelayedReality Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Ahhh, quite a few...Various tones of sienna (burnt, raw), yellow oxide, pearl copper, white, burnt umber, ochre, cadmium red/yellow, payne's grey, oxide brown...And I think I might have thrown some olive in there. But I mix everything before it hits the canvas.

The glitter, I believe, I stole from my niece. ;)
