Tuesday Tips and Tricks: Snow

Hello everyone!  Samantha here with this week's Tuesday Tips and Tricks segment.

With winter holidays coming up, I wanted to start talking a bit about some winter themed techniques and such. Today, I am here to talk to you about SNOW! Snow is one of those "white" objects that can be colored with many different color combinations.

Here are some color combos that I would recommend for you to test out:

  • B0000, B000, B00 (for a blueish-icy colored snowman)
  • BG0000, BG000 (for blueish-icy colored snowman)
  • E0000, E000, E40 (for a more rustic type snowman)
 Get creative and try different color combos until you are happy with your results.

Here are some snowmen examples with some additional color combos:

For this snowman I used: W1 and W0 to color in the snowman. I wanted to use warm tones to color him in rather than cool tones, because all of the brown I was going to be using. If I had colored him in with B's he would look pretty funky.

For this snowman, I used the following colors: B000, B21, B23, B41, B45
I did a faux watercolor stipple technique on him to give the snow some texture.

On this snowman, I used BG70 and blended it out a lot using the colorless blender.

Coloring snow, or anything white for that matter, can be a little challenging so practice a little and see what you can create.

What are your favorite snow color combos? Please share them in the comments section below. We would love to hear about them!
