Painting snow subjects has got to be one of the most enjoyable painting experiences. As Noel Garner explains:
"Snow is never white - it's a whole variety of pale colour based on white but with fascinating changes of colour and vibrancy. What's more, when the weather conditions change, the appearance of a snow scene changes too. It's these features which I want to explore with artists who are keen to expand their repertoire."
