    A Bridge to the Unknown

    I found out, it's a lot harder to paint snow, than it is ground. The glare hides stuff, and just when you think it's right - you take another look, and find gremlins..
    Well, I've about gone blind working on this, so, it is what it is..

    AR2.5, used all the tools except the brush.

    Hey, Barnburner, I think that is pretty darn good, snow is very hard to paint, I can see the little bridge and all the snow around it, you could have built a huge snowman up against the sky...lol that way you can separate the sky from the snow

    Yeah, I thought about including some trees, twigs, etc., but, I wanted the feeling of an endless expanse,
    and I felt that adding anything else might take away from that. Thanks a lot Pat for your kind comments.
    Much appreciated. (Now I got to find a tylenol for my headache.. LOL.)

    You certainly have captured the endless expanse and the snow is good.

    Could use some of that chill here... it's too hot. ...Just some though... don't want to get too frosty either.

    Yikes, Barnb., this snow cooled us down to 99F, thanks. What a lonely place, and very well done on painting the snow.

    I'm with you - not too hot - not too cold! LOL..
    Thanks Magen.

    Well, if we got it below 100, then you are in good shape!
    Thanks a lot Jasmine. I appreciate it.

    Or, I was thinking, perhaps up around the arctic circle?
    Then again, it could be on the southern quadrant of Planet Locksley....
    Thanks a lot AT!

    Great painting Barnb! I like the cold desolate feeling it gives. Snow can be a little tricky at times. I find it helpful not to think of it as white when I'm painting but more just a reflective color of the sky. Usually lots of light blues or even purples (depending on the sky) only using white or near white for highlights of where light is hitting. Nice job!
