Although I wanted to suggest the “frosty” elements I didn’t want this to be a cold painting to look at. I added warmth and framed the subject by adding the yellow orange haze to the background and trees. I was most excited about the idea of the dress becoming the frost in the surroundings. To produce the frosty effect I experimented with salt sprinkled into a watercolour wash.
