Watercolor Techniques for Realistic Snowy Trees & Bushes
Step 5: Shadows On Snow
Add Ultramarine Deep to the sky blue mix, then paint in any shadows that fall on the snow, including the one cast by the tree onto the ground, and the shadowed side of the tree. Try to avoid using grey as it will cause the snow to appear dirty. When all the paint is dry, you can even add more trees in the background, although the snow on these trees won’t be as bright as they are in the foreground.
