The Snow fall this year has been far below what I like to see for a solid snow painting season... I really feel like the snow is a great change in abstract shapes to paint and love how everything gets silhouetted by the snow also composition can become a fun game of connect the dots. The subtle color and value shifts of sunlit snow and getting to really use my cold pthalo colors in the shadows get me so fired up to paint snow.. I'm gonna have to cut this post short to go do a snow dance out in the street.
The piece above is at the moment untitled, 16x20" and from Weber and Son Lobster CO in (I think) Harpswell Maine.
