Winter Nocturne is a dynamic example of how Sotter's training in stained glass directly translated to his canvases. His palette is bold and his brushwork is full of rich texture. Here, he composes the snow laden landscape and night sky with subtle variations of color, a technique that adds dimension and an almost prismatic effect. With the introduction of a few structures at the base of the mountain, the painting becomes a statement of nature versus man. The cold snow and the massive terrain become the dominant factors of this work.
