Here is my first snow colors study for 2014. It takes me some practice to reprogram my mind to think about the color of snow used for shadows and sun light – it’s all a mind game I suppose, but it does take a bit to switch from landscapes to snow scenes and identifying those elements of values particular to snow.
This oil pastel (4×6) is my first sample of snow for 2014 – a little painting to get me going, This scene was great for it’s a close-up of a snow gully with deep pockets, a bit of water resting in the middle and several small trees for interest, all nice characteristics for a snow scene.
