Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays to you all and to your loved ones! 

~ Have a Wonderful New Year!!!  2019

I painted these watercolor evergreen trees/snow scapes as Xmas cards for my family members. I taped off 4 segments of a large sheet of Arches watercolor paper and then experimented with different snow techniques: like salt, white gauche, and spattering water into the sky area. Each gave me a different effect in the end. Finally I added some sparkle paint to the snow which cannot really be seen in a photos but really gave the scenes a magical Christmas feel. In the end I learned a lot and I think they came out OK. Next year they will be MUCH better!

Merry Christmas! ~ Sandra Gale
