Snow in Santa Fe, BRRRRR!

I’m starting a new snow painting for Santa Fe. Which is quite appropriate, it got down to 7 degrees on Thanksgiving night! BRRRRRRRR! The sketch with my notes is shown above. The numbers on the sketch are the digital image files for the reference I want to use.

When painting a courtyard scene covered in snow I still have to construct the buildings first. Then let the snow fall. Therefore I begin by establishing the ground lines for the basic architecture, planter and bench.

The sketch on canvas is complete, ready for me to start painting in the morning. This is going to be a fun piece. Especially since I’ll be in our nice, warm studio! Hugs, Mikki Senkarik
