Are you entranced by the colors that poke through the snow, too?

I’ve been experimenting like crazy with Acrylics this month… I feel like this exploration will add a depth to my portraits and landscapes.

This little painting took a few days, with lots of drying time between coats. I wanted to replicate the beautiful effect of opaque snow sitting on the amber wheat fields. This scene is just past our back yard.

I used super heavy watercolor paper, and the first coat of paint really soaked in. I’m also trying for a similar effect on canvas – a bigger painting I’ve also been working on for days – and am really entranced with the depth that is possible. I’m not sure it comes through in my photos…
