Sisley's Snow at Louveciennes (1878)
Here are some great winter looks from the past couple of months which I think show very strong ties to both these works. They use varying shades of grey with some touches of muted brown and whites that are soft rather than glaring. The looks are loose and flowing, with soft edges for the most part which speak to the indefinite harmonies of the piano piece and the undefined brush strokes of the painting.
GET THE LOOK: SISLEY'S SNOW AT LOUVECIENNES (1874)
Four years before painting the picture referenced above, Sisley painted this one of the exact same spot. The styles are remarkably different, with this one embracing much warmer colors and more defined edges, particularly among the buildings, the foreground trees, and the wooden fence. The sky and the trees of the background are more ambiguous, a hint of his painting to come four years later. But overall, this work is more about the visible landscape in the snow rather than the atmosphere and mood created by the snowfall. Still a lovely work, though, so here are a few pieces to put together a more structured and defined winter look based on this earlier painting!
