“Snowy Evening” watercolour gift card – masking fluid technique

I painted this little watercolour and made it into a gift card. I have enjoyed some snowy winter evenings when I lived in Hobart Tasmania and Armidale NSW. I also spent one memorable winter travelling in Switzerland, Germany and Austria, Snow always makes the landscape so quiet and magical.

I used masking fluid on arches paper to create the snow flakes and then painted the sky over the top. It is always dramatic to peel back the dried masking fluid and see the effect of this technique.
