Snow painting is for the hale and hearty. It is a totally rewarding experience. The right equipment to keep you warm and comfortable in these cold temperatures is important.
Snow clouds moved in across the White Mountains in the late afternoon to bring a sprinkling of the white stuff at dawn.
The Sunset Hill Inn where we were “camped” is an old historic inn with a great off the beaten track location. It was perfect as a snow camp base.
During the day the clouds would come in and drag across the mountain peaks leaving a layer of white . They left a visible snow line.
It was snowing fairly steadily so I painted this sketch under the roof of the large porch on the back of the inn.
Nancy and Susan concentrated on their paintings as the temperatures dropped and the air grew damp.
Dennis and Will went for the total New Hampshire winter plein air experience in falling snow. They had favorite spots where they painted out in the open meadow.
