10x10 pastel on grey toned BFK
When driving to the lake I was thinking about refraction and the snow's effect on it. I tried to study that while trying to keep the abstract quality in the landscape. That led me to choose the hill as subject matter, rather than the lake.
PS I photographed the snow field again and replaced yesterday's jpeg with the more recent one. Still doesn't work, but at least it's accurate. Now to helping the patient.
