Demonstrating snow on spruces – photo by John Mangels
Painting snow and winter scenes was the topic of our March watercolor workshop in St. George. Held in the studio at “A Passion for Painting” we discussed one of my favorite subjects for watercolor. Snow provides a wonderful opportunity to explore wet-into-wet techniques and the unique characteristic that watercolor exhibits as pigment mingles and flows on wet paper. The first day’s subject was snow on spruce trees and rocks. The second day we explored how snow looks on buildings and structures.
