Chain of Events : Studio Images March 26, 2009 Amy Kollar Anderson Inspired by the movie, The Day After Tomorrow, and the concept of a sudden, contemporary Ice Age. This painting is 30" x 40". Initial sketch. Debating on the composition. Using a house style terrarium. Playing around with the foreground. Restarting with the canvas in a new orientation. Playing around with snowflake patterning and metallic blue paint. Softening the background. Thanks to Cosette for being my muse! Building up the "lucky" clovers and the background. Decided on a horizon line to give the piece more depth. The happy sky turns dark and soiled. Starting the ellipse of the terrarium. Daisy chains and snow flakes. Detail of face. Detail of hands. Detail of sky. The finished painting.
