This painting is of a tree in a park across the road from the house I was living in at the time. It is rare for the Blue Mountains in Australia to have large snow falls. So I was resolved to capture this event.I use acrylic since it is fast drying and easy to thin out without chemicals, unlike oil painting. The paper is a high quality watercolour paper which provides a smooth and absorbent surface for the acrylic and water.
