A Tree in a Snow Storm from my Window
watercolor 12 by 16


This is my first watercolor rendering of a photo taken by Ranger in the last snow storm.

I wish that I had left more room over the top of the tree. The next try, I am thinking of using a larger and longer paper, leaving more room for the sky on top and maybe adding two flying goose or swans over the tree tops to the left. Any other critique is welcome.
Without the painting next to me, I am not sure which photograph is closer to the reality of the work. But which one feels more like a tree in a storm to you?

your painting really gives me the impression of the blizzard.

The first one is more grey and more storm-like.

And I agree with you, more space for the sky might be a good idea.

Thank you all.

It means that in the next try, I should add more of Ultramarine blue over the cobalt blue and Turquoise. rose
