I received a comment from Kelley MacDonald that she uses pthalo and rose for her snow color. So, for this piece I followed her suggestion. Permanent rose is not in my regular palette, but is in my extended palette, so I had not thought to use it for snow mixture. I really like the cool effect this mixture gives; I might tone it down a little more in another painting.

Using permanent rose got me to thinking again about my extended palette. I have colors from classes and workshops that I don't always use. I think I might do some color studies with these. I've done many color value scales in the past with and for my students, and for myself. Doing some again would be fun and would expand my color knowledge.

Beautiful snow paintings, Pam, I love the new look of Kelley's color suggestions. I think they are very effective in creating the "snow look". It all looks very cold, Stay warm!

Lovely, Pam. were you outside in the snow? By thalo, do you mean thalo green or thalo turquoise? We use both on our palette, as well as permanent rose. Its one of my favorite colors, great for color study.

Nice colorful shadows!
I like your cherry study also. My mom would like it. She married a Cherry, and I married a Berry.
