Watercolor painting of Snowy Street

Painting on wet surface can create a soft and distance feeling in a watercolor painting. In a rainy or snowy day, the distant trees or other objects look much softer and lighter and grey than the objects closer to the foreground. This is a technique: starting painting the background on a more water-saturated surface so the color will fate and blend into the surrounding water, then continue to paint the mid-ground when the surface has less water-saturated, and then work on the foreground when it is more dried for more definitions. At the end of this painting process, I used a bristle brush to splash some white dusts to finish this snowy street painting.
