Landscape painting of sunset over Revelstoke, British Columbia, Canada

Original landscape painting of sunset over the snowy footpath along the Columbia Sunset, Revelstoke, British Columbia, Canada, called “Sunset over Revelstoke III”, 16 x 16 x 0.78 inches, 40.6 x 40.6 x 2.0 cm, acrylic on canvas, completed May 2015, Price: $150.00


This is the last in my series of three paintings of Revelstoke, BC, at sunset, in winter. It is tricky to paint a snow scene at night, because basically light and dark are reversed. The sky is dark, the snow-covered ground is light, and the problem is to put sufficient visible objects in the scene to create perspective and interest.
