Simple snow scenes using a limited palette

Below is the final step of a step by step snowscene demonstration I wrote for Leisure Painter magazine (March 2011). A limited palette of ultramarine blue and burnt sienna works well for this sort of scene. Remember to keep subject matter in the distance cooler and softer edged than in the foreground. Always try to simplify. I painted two further images using a similar palette and techniques. Images approx 10 x 7″.
