Painting snow while it melts

 I wanted to do a blog this week about the Autumn weather change in the Alps, but the snow beat me to it!
Swirling mist, opened to reveal snow clad trees and moments of light striking the stark white mountain tops.

The cloud sank deeper into the Giffre valley, the paints came out and I tried to capture swirling mist, Spruce and Conifers glistening with snow and a  few chalets at Vercland disapearing into the cloud layer.

First Snow 
painted in watercolours
Winsor Blue, Cadmiuim Yellow and English Red Ochre

A few hours later, bright green fields and a dusty of snow on the tops and all is revealed.

Fancy joining my watercolour course
