"Ghost of Trees Past" is my first snow painting, as well as, my first naked tree (tree with no leaves). This was so much harder than I anticipated I can not tell you!
The Wetcanvas' landscape section has a monthly challenge to paint with different reference pictures. It is really interesting to see how everyone paints the same scene so differently. I finished the painting this morning... it was from the December challenge. That right there should give you a hint as to why the painting is named what it is.
