Gate 5 - Winter Gate

This is my first attempt at anything "snow." It was actually more work than it looks -- very difficult trying to define the shapes of the snow clinging to the branches of the tree was a challenge. For a first attempt, I'm pretty happy with it. I'd like to try some more snow scenes. I used Cerulean VERY WATERED DOWN and then did some outlines in a cool gray that I mixed. Now to decide on the next gate.

Wow, it really does look like snow! Great job Brenda!

in answer to your question, I have been using just plain paper for my portraits. I think there is too much texture in the Lama li.

I love this whole idea of gates and fences you are doing each one of them is just great.

I think you've done an outstanding job on the snow. I really like the softness of the snow against the hardness of the fence.
