Falling Snow

Today was a snow day which is unusual here in Gladstone. There was actually snow on the ground!!!!!! I live  near the park and the river and was able to take advantage of the weather and go walking and photographing. The snow was falling in big fat flakes and everything was quiet except for the flying geese. Just a light covering of white dusted everything.
Based on one of my photos I decided what better subject to paint and set out to begin when I returned home. Deciding that acrylic ink would describe the trees best with added granulation medium I began with a small piece of paper and several different colors of inks. After that dried I added some watercolor and then tinted white acrylic ink. Spattering with white finished this piece.
This is the first step with just the inks
