Dundas crescent, Kirkwall in the snow
A print of a watercolour painting by Orkney artist Jane Glue
printed on C-Type Matt
This scene was captured on a snowy Christmas day! I live just above the houses in the picture so I didn't have to travel far to catch my subject! We don't often get snow in Orkney as it won't lie but on this day it was very picturesque so it had to be painted! To create the snow using watercolour paint, I have left lots of 'paper' white. I never use actual white paint when I paint with watercolours as I feel it tends to look like a greyish white.
