New-fallen Snow

Doodlewash prompt: New.

There is nothing quite like the beauty and serenity of newly fallen snow – at least for the first few months, lol.

Did you know that snow is not white? It’s actually translucent like ice. However, light bounces off the facets in such a way that we see it as white most often. This explains why sometimes it appears to be blue or pink, though. Yellow snow comes from a completely different source.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.

  1. This really captures the layers of snow falling in sunlight. Like one of my favorite carols…”In the Bleak Midwinter” whose chorus sings: Snow is falling, snow on snow….snow on snow on snow…” Beautiful!
