Shadows in the Snow

Today I did a 1 hour watercolor study in complementary colors - Indian Yellow and Violet.  This watercolor is 8" x 6" and is painted on Canson Tientes cold-pressed watercolor paper.  I definitely paint more loosely when painting quickly!

Love the colorful shadows and wintry feel to this!

Thanks, Teresa - especially for your comment about the shadows - I struggle with shadows most of the time! :(

Gorgeous painting; love the colours and the eeriness of it.

Michelle...I love to paint in purples and yellows - you can get such a range of colors with them. I agree that there is sort of an eeriness to it - it must be all those lurking shadows!!! tee hee
Thanks so much for commenting.
