Winter scenes with snow may be my next series after the Southwestern Skies is completed, so this was a good experiment. I started it last week, and after watching a live demo this past Sunday, where Johannes painted a snow scene, I rushed down and finished the painting that evening. There are things I would change on it, like toning down the blue of the water - it's cerulean, but a tad too chromatic. Johannes was kind enough to critique it for me during the Monday night webinar, and we discovered it looks even better with most of the foreground cropped away.
It is painted on a reclaimed painting from the Four Corners series.
