Winter Color....Finished Painting

'Winter Color' 11x14 pastel
Here is the finsihed painting. After the alcohol wash dried, I began painting the sky. I then applied the darkest areas then the snow shadows. Working all over the painting, I built up each section and reseved the lightest snow until the end.
