Early snow on the farm
This farm is near where I used to live. We didn’t get a lot of snow there and this scene is
from an early dusting.
Painting white trees against a dark background is a fun exercise I enjoy teaching in my technique class. If the technique is master the trees almost paint themselves. I enjoy painting snow scenes. The white of the paper is the snow. I don’t use white paint as there is no transparent white watercolor and the painted white appears chalky next to the watercolors.
