Keep Going!

I was definitely in unknown territory working on the snow.  Somehow I needed to use color variation to suggest little drifts covering the landscape.  The land had to be clearly different from the sky, and also clearly receding into the distance.

It's always fun to do stray grasses and weeds.  But now I see that I need to bring the fur down a little lower on the dogs to catch the weeds in the image.  Also maybe I should open up that dark streak across the bottom with a patch of lighter snow.

I'm happy with the highlight on the black dog's back - it breaks up the large dark mass and shows more of the texture of the fur.  But I'm a bit unhappy with the right dog's eye and feel that I still need more color in her fur.
