    Watercolour on Arches rough paper. 140lb. 1/2 imperial. The sun has been blazing today and I have been painting snow for my christmas card! The reference source came from the internet as an autumn scene, but I changed the season to match a winter scene. I’ve tried to make the centre trees contre-jour with a strong sunrise.

    Pete.

    I like this but i would have perhaps warmed up the snow a little to match with the lovely warm glow in the sky.

    Take time to look and make sure you see.

      @bradbayliss Hi Brad. Thanks for your comment Brad. Duly noted. I did consider putting more colour in the snow, but decided against it because I wanted a nice clean picture for the printing. Whether that was the right decision at the end of the day is open to question 🙂 I decided I’d fiddled enough and sent it to the printers. Too late now 😀

      Pete.

    Superb representation, Pete.   I live in Cornwall and know this place well and you have captured it magnificently.

    This is beautiful, Pete! Love the sun’s glow and the bare trees against it. Your snow is really good, too. 😀
