The Stacy of the ACEO Challenge blog is hosting a Swap. The theme of this Swap is Winter/Snow/Christmas. If you are interested in joining the swap send your name and address to Stacy at the email address provided in her posting.
In since the swap involves snow, I thought that would a good topic for today’s posting.
There is a nice article on the Artists Loft website called “Making Snow Sparkle” How to layer watercolor to make snow look bright white. It was written by William H. Hays; The Artist's Magazine, February 1992. It is still relevant today.
Deb Watson shows "How To Paint Snow Scenes inWatercolor". In this demo, she paints with a limited palette using only four colours.
Also, in an earlier posting on Creating Texture with Salt, Lee Pierce commented that Salt is a good way to imitate falling snow in a winter landscape. Give that a try!
