After having painted a several winter sceneries, I wanted to change things up a bit, and add more of a human element to the image. I wanted to add a bit of architecture, and decided to paint this lovely a-frame cabin.
While the cabin is man made, it mirrors a lot of the shapes of the surrounding trees. Though as the cabin is painted in warm tones, it also stands out from the cool environment, making it seem like a safe and cosy refuge in the winter. As the lights are on, I also chose to add a human element of showing some of the furniture by the window, as well as two people standing in the window looking up at the starry night sky.
