This is my painting, Glistening Snow. I was interested in achieving the accumulation of snow on the trees and boards over the water. This is actual texture made with thick strokes of paint. I used the color (hue) yellow and its split complement, blue violet. Split complements are the 2 hues beside the complement of the color. The complement of yellow is violet. The split complements of yellow are red violet and blue violet. Snow is not white. It reflects the colors around it. The snow in my painting has a yellow hue from the overhead sun and a blue violet hue from the above sky.
