Winter Water Color Idea

This is a fairly simple water color painting to do and it's so filled with winter light. We soak our water color paper and make sure it's not too wet before painting. I wipe mine down with a paper towel. Use good quality water color paints such as Stockmar and good brushes. Working with the light, outline the trees with the blue, create a moon by removing more color with a dryer brush and lift the paint away to create the rays as well. We discovered when turned one way it was a snowy forest but flipped it was an icicle cover cave entrance! Have fun!
