Frozen Window by Amarathimi Frozen Window by Amarathimi
Media: Watercolor, salt, white acrylic paint.
Size: about A6

Winter is here and there is freezing outside. Days are short and dark and yet there isnít any snow here in southern Finland. :(

I had a huge urge to paint a frozen window one day. The trickiest part in the picture was the ice in the window. I had no idea how I could paint it. Studied from photo references what ice on the window looks like and I painted many fast pictures to try out different techniques to paint one. Best results I had with wet paint and a paper towel. Salt and acrylic paint I used only to strengthen the effect.

Iím pretty pleased how the picture turned out. The light in the picture especially, because itís still quite hard for me to get right.

Hope you like it! :aww:

There are probably one thousand ways to convey and icy window--this has to be one of the better methods. Kudos for trying hard and experimenting. It paid off. The mouse helps convey the chill somehow. Nice choice; it is adorable. The tail is a little fat, but if it's drawn from life, then it's fine.
