Blanket of Snow 2

Blanket of Snow 2, Arches HP, 28 x 34 cm
This is a second version of a scene that I tried painting more than a year ago. I used the remaining piece of hot-pressed paper, which accounts for the unpleasant spotty effects in the sky. Apart from that, I'm quite happy with the way it turned out - way simpler and looser than the first version and more dimensional too.

Je préfère cette deuxième version où le poids de la neige est évident. Les traces de pas sont bienvenues. Bon week-end à toi !

Each snow has its own character: dear Blaga you have well managed the snow!
 I love the light, the colors and the softness of the lines of both magic snowfall!

Fantastic winter scene, you really get the feeling of a heavy snowfall ! xx

I love the way you simplified the scene! Using mostly blue gives it a tranquil feel. And the hint of yellow light in the sky is great!

Merci Lydie pour ton commentaire! Bon week-end à toi aussi!

Thank you, Rita! I don't like much winter, but I have to admit that a heavy fresh snow does look cosy.

Thank you, Jane! I was after that exact feel of a heavy, squeaky snow.

Thank you, Judy, I'm glad you like it. I wish I had done a better job with the wash on the sky...

Thank you, Jane!
