Color in Perspective - Snow

November 12, 2018

One of the things that I'm known for in oil painting is my color.  Color doesn't come to me by accident. The colors are all planned out ahead of time on my palette. So when I paint, I paint! There's none of this brushing on a color and then stopping and mixing a new color up. That kind of starting and stopping isn't the way I want to work. I need to concentrate on my strokes and details while I'm painting, not worrying about color.


Here is a little video I've done for my Color Workshops as a refresher.

As I always say = There is no such thing a white snow. Snow has color and reflex something around it. This video is about some of my basic snow mixes for my palette.
