This is a winter wonderland type scene that we encountered just off the TransCanada Hwy just east of Revelstoke. It was a spectacular glimpse of a world encased in hoar frost. I’ve loved the photo for a long time but this is my first attempt to paint it. What I have discovered is that I need some watercolour technique that would represent the frost covered bushes. It’s too delicate a shape to be satisfactorily rendered using a brush. I tried here to use a pouring type technique which was somewhat successful. Also the subtle value shifts that are so common in this image need, paradoxically, require more attention than broader value contrasts.
