Painting a snow scene in watercolor allows me to make use of the white paper and transparent qualities of the medium. The glazed edges makes the scene pop.
Nothing seems to reflect light and shadow better than snow. While painting this winter scene I played with the glow of sunlight that creates color in the white of the tree trunks and the snow revealing the reds, yellows and blues everywhere.
The “Gorge”, formed thru violent eruptions and force, is a transformed landscape of awesome beauty. The sepia tones represent past times melting into the NOW. Not unlike the beauty of a transformed life in the hands of God.
“On a cold winter day at sunset on the Colorado river, a large blue heron appears. These birds are year round residents along bodies of water in Texas. I used the almost dry, river bed as a backdrop for the painting and included the seasons of color and of sepia tones to represent the transcendent presence of the heron’s lookout.”
