Snowy Spaulding Meadows & Trees with Dramatic Skies

In this tutorial, Vinita walks you through every step of creating a gorgeous snow scene with some spectacular shadows, the standout feature of the reference photo. Vinita starts by painting the sky area with a brighter color to provide interest to the otherwise minimal color scheme of blues, violets, and greens. She then adds a very pale wash to the middle ground snow area to distinguish it from the foreground snow, which she leaves as the white of the paper. Vinita paints the snow-covered mountains with a violet-blue color, mixing Chinese white in to create the illusion of fog or snow. Follow her step by step and soon you will be able to create a piece that's wall ready too.
