I had soooo much fun painting this! I didn't think I was going to be able to finish this one today, but I couldn't put my brush down! With this piece I really wanted to bring out the trees in the forefront, but still find a flow throughout the painting, as well as give a warm snow day kind of feeling. I like working on a 3-value thumbnail before starting my paintings, and that seems to give me a really good idea of what I want to end up with. I'm still learning to be more comfortable with vibrant colors, and the more I practice with them, the easier it gets. The weather people are calling for lots of snow here this weekend, so I hope I can get out with my camera to capture some cool photos.
