Snowed In - A Work in Progress

It has been snowing all night and will continue to snow all day today and we are to get another 8" (20 cm).

I thought it fitting to paint something with a lot of heavy wet packing snow in it. This is the kind of snow that clings to the branches of the trees and weighs them down; with enough of this type of snow on them the branches can often break under the weight.

I have removed the masking from the foreground snow covered trees and have almost finished one of them. The shadows still need to be greyed more as everything is just too blue.

I will post this painting at a later date when I have finished more of the pines.
