Snow, Salt, Splatter, Dry Brush


Snow, Salt, Splatter, Dry Brush
Originally uploaded by linfrye
I'm taking another of Kate's wonderful watercolor classes. This is a combination of texturing techniques using salt, splatter and a dry brush. I painted it from imagination ... and since it has been 100F the last 3 days and we haven't had rain in 3 weeks, it was even more difficult to remember what it was like to be COLD!!

So refreshing! Love the splattered sky and the coolness of the snow. I did a little felted piece this week and called it "pining for fall!" We finally had a thunderstorm last night;much needed rain.

Excellent execution of the techniques!! I, too, would love to be in some snow. . . or at least cool down to 95 or so - LOL!!

I like to pretend it's cold too - this is lovely, especially that dark starry sky.

Great imagination and technique in this one. It could make a nice holiday card. I'm sorry your weather continues to be awful. I think we've had the most perfect summer weather I can ever remember in the Bay Area this year. Or maybe I'm just enjoying it more since I'm painting outdoors.
