Painting a Twilight Snow Scene on Textured Ground.
When imagining a winter scene, we usually visualize a scene filled with white. But in the low-light hours of twilight, snow can become a blanket of rich indigo and turquoise blue. Pairing that with the warm highlights of the setting sun reflecting on clouds or the warm light emanating from the windows of a house can create a scene that is colorful and expressive.
While this could be painted on any pastel paper, a textured ground can be used to impart subtle drama to an overall simplified scene of an isolated homestead silhouetted against a twilight sky during winter.
