We have freezing fog here in the Seattle area but east of the mountains where my brother-in-law lives there is plenty of snow. He kindly shared some photos so I have a chance to paint snow. I think this is the first snow I have ever painted and I find it to be similar to painting fluffy grass but the colors are more subtle (and difficult to photograph). "First Snow" is 12 x 12 inches, pastel on 4-ply archival mat board with a rose-colored gesso/pumice coating.
