Snow Shadows

As with all shadows in the landscape, capturing accurate values for shadows in a snow scene can be challenging, especially when working from reference photos. Since there are additional reflective qualities that come into play when painting snow, important visual adjustments must be made in order to create a genuine sense of light and shadow. You may find it helpful to first complete the earlier lesson on Shadows, which pertains to shadows in a mostly green landscape, as it covers many basic principles about shadows in general, and technical tips on adjusting reference photos.



This lesson will teach you how to paint shadows in a snow-covered landscape. I’ll show and explain in a pastel demo how to create snow shadows with accurate values and appropriate color vibrancy, so that they can best feature the surrounding landscape.

This lesson is provided as a downloadable PDF with a lesson written by Barbara Jaenicke.
