"Powdery hill" progression

I usually take photos at different stages of a painting but never have the time to come here and post it for those of you that are interested on the process!

The reference photo comes from a close-up crop of one of the many pictures I took up in Gold Creek Pond at Snoqualmie Pass.

Blank board with reference photo and my thumbnail (being a good student here).

Drawing with a grey pastel pencil. Not the best one but can change!

I used hard pastels to define value areas.

Fun part: alcohol applied with a brush letting some drips do their thing.

Some dry pastel application... at some point my tree had way too much snow.

I moved away from the photo and tried to give some character to the lonely fellow.

Finished painting! Available.
