In today's blog, I want to go over a question I get a lot and that's how to paint simple snow. I took a clip from one of my shows showing how to paint the simple and easy way to lay down snow, so you can add trees on top or a cabin or tall grasses etc... First to get started you need to paint in a dark base that can be a dark blue or black. In the video clip I covered the whole canvas in Black Canvas Seal ©.
This gave me my dark base so I can show the nice white snow on top. Because you need dark to show light. Next I used my 1" Landscape brushes.
Then I loaded it in Titanium White to a chiseled edge, and just pulled in my snow. This technique will give you a nice soft snow. If you want a textured snow use your palette knife and load a roll of paint on it and then break it on top of the dark base.
