It Snowed!

I have been fussing over this painting for a while...just didn't like it and never felt it was finished so I decided ...What if it snowed? So I grabbed my favorite snow color pastels and changed this fall farm scene to an early snow scene...what do you think?

Waterlouge. AP Great for looking at a photo for a preliminary painting

I am planning a painting of my granddaughter running ..I downloaded her photo to Waterlogue AP 
This is a great free AP for looking at shapes and values because the photo becomes less defined allowing the artist to see this before planning the actual painting composition. It simplifys the photo.
Below is the photo in Waterlogue and the shapes can be seen more easily than in the original photo.
