You know I'm not much for snow. This was a demo for class. One painter had a nice photo from an Ohio farm. In the photo the snow was still falling, so it called for soft brushwork. In fact it was painted upside down so we didn't over emphasize the structures. When turned right side up, then the obvious corrections were easy to make. With just some light tweaks, it will "read" nicely. It only took about an hour to do since the brushwork was so light.
