Snow effect, Damvillers by Jules Bastien-Lepage

Oil on canvas, 16.9 x 20.8 inches, 1882

Yesterday, we got our first snowfall of the winter. It's absolutely beautiful outside. Maybe I'll have some photos to share after I take a walk in the snow.

I can't remember where I first came across this snowy landscape by Jules Bastien-Lepage. I did find an interesting written and audio description of the piece on the National Gallery of Australia website.
