Snowy Plein Air

After a huge blizzard yesterday in the East Coast, the snow piled up to two feet. Had to seize this opportunity to do my very first snowy Plein Air.

Found a park nearby, but still had to trudge through snow to get to a spot where I'm satisfied with the lighting and composition.

Wanted this painting to start out loosely, finding the darks of the composition.

Finding and blocking in the forms

Started adding in midtones to structure the forms out even more.
