Night Painting

I'd love to say I painted plein air at night in a snow storm, but I'd be lying. I was out in the snow on SuperBowl Sunday and snapped this shot with my camera phone (I wrote about it here). It was a challenge to paint. The only way to render snow in watercolor paint is to not use paint but paint the things around the snow. Negative painting. I think I blew a pupil. The photo of the painting DOES NOT capture the true colors. The colors in the the painting are so much more intense and clear - my camera could not translate this. If Gloria Gaynor can survive, so can I.
