Forest Snowfall

'Forest Snowfall' 9x12 pastel
Yesterday was my workshop on painting the winter landscape. It was actually a trial run for the presentation and workshop I will be doing for the Appalachian Pastel Society in January. We had a great time painting snow and I hope that everyone enjoyed it and learned something too. I know that we discovered that snow is a lot of fun to paint. This is the demo painting I did for the class. It is on pastelbord with a value underpainting/alcohol wash. I also showed everyone a fun way to make pastel snow.
