I think you can see that I used just two colours in this painting.....burnt sienna, cobalt blue and maybe a little ultramarine blue.....been a while so I'm not quite sure.
The main learning lesson here was to shade the snow effectively. I dipped a one inch flat brush in water...then dipped one corner of the brush in a blue shade and made a curve shape on the white paper. The side of the brush with the paint makes a hard edge and the part where there is only water on the brush makes a soft edge. I'm still working on this!!!
The house was wiped out to add a little interest.
