Creating a snow scene from the beautiful Snow Bird, where you can ski, snowshoe, and hike.
Painting snow scenes in watercolors is a great challenge. Snow is a difficult challenge in any medium. But with no white paint presents a different problem. You have to leave the white of your paper, but still create shadows and texture in your snow. My family went for a hike at snow Bird and it was too cold to bring my paints. So I took many reference photos to work from once home. When working from home, you need to remember the feel of the snow scene. To transport your viewer to that place. I wanted you to feel the cold crispness of the air. But also feel warmth of the setting sun. To feel the quiet and peaceful surroundings of Snow Bird.
