About this painting: I got the idea for this painting when I was thinking about a time I went snowshoeing on a stream in the woods. It was frozen solid and a lot of the snow had blown off the ice making it look like a winding road through the trees. I thought it was a really surreal looking atmosphere at the time, and when I was thinking about it recently, thought it would make a great painting.
Follow along with me as I show you all the steps to create this icy atmospheric painting in acrylics. I’ll tackle the cumulus clouds and show you how to create depth in the snow. It’s a lot of fun, and will take you to a cold but magical land!
