When: Dec 4th at  11:00 (PST)

Painting Snow with Vibrancy & Energy

In this demo we’ll  cover how to look at snow on location or in a photograph to determine where to start and how to end when painting snow. The process is simple once you know what to look for and understand the need for multiple mixed whites. Key aspects will include controlling your values and shifting colour temperatures throughout shadow and light. You’ll be amazed how much colour is in snow!
