There was a beautiful snowfall last month. The snow was thick and heavy, sticking to the hemlocks and weighing them down. It is rare that we get snow like this, so I thought I would take advantage of the challenge of painting white in the sunlight. You have to really watch for temperature variation of the white and shadow because there is so much color bounce from all the light. Look how much yellow is on the underside of the snowcovered branches. And notice how the shadows change temperature with every angle change.
