Winter Forest


 This Winter Forest is from a tutorial by Sarah Cray for Let's Make Art. I haven't been drawn to paint the many snow scenes offered by so many wonderful artists. Snow is not my favorite things and was a very good reason to move to Florida. I really dislike shoveling the stuff, not to mention driving in it!

I did want to paint this scene because I love its simplicity. It wasn't simple to paint. Each layer and each tree took time and effort to do it justice. I'm really pleased with the finished piece.

I painted the scene with Winsor Newton Cotman watercolor tubes on Canson 140 lb watercolor paper. I used both Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White and table salt to enchanted this scene.
