After I added the evergreen in the near background, and added a few bare branches to the tree on the right, I knew it was time to stop working on this painting. As a study, I think it works, but I'm dissatisfied with the rendering of the snow (too many purple shadows, not enough white). It's a good reminder that the perpetual challenge of watercolor is found in its sometimes-unforgiving, but beautifully fluid, properties.
