Original oil painting by Lisa Oakley. Inspired by Cannock Chase and all its natural beauty. I often visit the Chase to paint plein air. A Winters Day is an oil painting completed in the studio working from my sketches and photographs.
I wanted to create a cold but magical landscape with winter snow and frost. The trees are barren of leaves looking elegant and proud in this cold world. A limited pallet was used to achieve the desired look. Oil on canvas.
