Barbara Jaenicke Teaches Three Snow Scenes

Heading Somewhere Warm
8" x 10" 
Barbara Jaenicke

Barbara Jaenicke, of Roswell, Georgia, blogs here.  I have become a fan of her teaching style, and want to share the following three posts from her blog with you. They unpack the mysteries of pastelling snow scenes, and she is careful to advise you to do some plein airing in order to keep it real if you also wish to use reference photos.  Good advice, and wonderful pastels, Barbara!

I totally agree reference photos don't do snow justice. All they can do is stop the light from changing so rapidly so you have something to go on back in the studio where you can pull off all your Patagonia snow gear. Not being a snow bunny,I have yet to experience the great outdoors in twenty degree weather--but maybe I could get as far as my backyard? I do have a winter snow scene going of that area that needs pushing. Jaenicke's posts were most informative.

You know this, Linda, but I'll remind the kind readers that we can always look out the window!
