|To combat the cold, I softened a pile of white with Neo Megilp|
Premixed greys to match value structure
|These were the thumbnails I started with to determine the layout.|
I did these very quickly because it was so cold but you can see that a few simple marks
can help guide your composition.
|Drawing - done with grey marker - Normally would|
use brush & paint but this was fast.
|Thinned application of warm darks to mass in shapes|
I like the look of the thinned, loosely mixed and colorful darks.
|Modeling the darks with more paint and adding variety in colors and brushwork.|
Began adding sky with palette knife.
|Finished painting - after adding warmer, lighter snow masses and snowflakes.|
