These were done during the second class, finished them up at home.
My teacher is kind of a master at wet on wet and making everything look crazy effortless and building up transparent layers. The backgrounds on these are actually in acrylic, a handy trick I never knew about before. After the acrylic dries it is never leaving or moving so you can do anything you want on top of it without mucking up the background. The little white snow is made by flicking toothbrush bristles over the painting.
