Peak Snow by Scot Howden

Peak Snow

From my original watercolour painting.

I used this picture in an attempt at a snow scene painting demonstration and have included an excerpt.

…..painting a snow scene can be a great way of simplifying a scene. Blankets of snow hide excessive detail and can also help to highlight the subject or focal points of a painting. Winter paintings often appear cold and unappealing so unless your goal is to portray a harsh winter environment it may help to soften the conditions. Adding warm colours to your snow scene can be an effective technique for doing this and can help draw the viewer in and make your painting more appealing…..
