Here are a few more digital studies of snow and the forms and shapes it creates. I braved deeply snow covered roads to travel the half mile just after a blizzard to find these wind carved moments around trees near the bay in this park. As I worked on these I was struck by the unexpected textural relationship that emerges when the tones become hard edged between the micro color zones in the snow and the bark of the tree. Very unifying and rich. The colors were also a challenge here to find the greyed violets and blue blends in the snow and the trees.
