The night light outside by bedroom window puzzles and delights me. Today I decided I had to try a brand new palette. Try a combination that is rare, special, subtle: so unlike my usual palette. Stretch. I chose the snowy night. Do you know those nights when the snow is just beginning to come and the light is so subdued, yet with that tint of green. The usual luscious deep blues are gone and the values are reduced. Then there is the snow. How does one paint the action of "snowing" quietly? The quietude.
This one is just watercolor, layers and layers of thick and thin watercolor.
