On the fencePosted: March 13, 2014
One of the most beautiful things about winter (I’m trying to find positive things to say about the season) is the shadows on fresh snow. I used to use a lot of Cobalt blue but I’ve been experimenting with some new recipes for snow colours. My ingredients are Cerulean blue, a tiny touch of Alizarin and a bit of Cobalt. I like the mauvish-blue but not the granulation that results from this mix. Painted on my last sheet from an Arches Carnet de voyage pad (very dryish, absorbent paper that sucks up all the paint in a bad way). Size: 6″ x 10″.
