Painting outdoors in winter can be an extreme sport. The snow, the
wind, the cold—it takes a certain kind of artist to paint a winter
landscape while in a winter landscape. The first time I
attempted this was a couple of years ago when I was living in
Connecticut. Two feet of snow had fallen the day before, but when I
looked out my window the scene was so inviting. I didn’t go far and
didn’t stay out long, but I had fun trying to capture the light effects
and reflective surface of the snow during daylight.
