Back into watercolor class last week. I painted the rough (darks only, so working in reverse for watercolor) of this a little over a week ago. Over the weekend, I added the lighter details and did some fix-up on the forms.
It worked out to do the darker stuff first – when I added the shadows and such, there was some bleeding of the darker colors, which was precisely correct. The snow reflects every color it “sees” from land and sky.
