Lesson 21: Snow on Evergreens

Snow is white; evergreens are dark and therefore paintings of snow on evergreens will utilize a wide value range which can yield dramatic images. In this class we considered arranging value shapes to create different size areas of light and dark. We also discussed modeling snow mounds with glazes to give them depth.

Jo chose to focus in on one small branch

Elaine rendered crocuses peaking through the snow.

Bev played with a variety of cool colors, interesting shapes and levels of snow clumps.

Linda created deep shadows on the snow and left bits of pure white to make it sparkle.
