Step 10: White paint was added to the snow once again, leaving some of the more neutral white to show in places.
Step 11: Light blue/violet was used where the snow on the boughs would be in the shade. My imaginary light source is coming from the upper left.
Step 12: More sky washes to increase depth and interest.
The final painting. Smaller branches were added, the light shadow patterns refined, more foliage added, the sun more pronounced and sky holes refined. I hope that you have enjoyed this demonstration as much as I did painting it!
