Before the Snow, Watercolor

In this painting, I used Elmer's Glue as a resist on the tree and grass shapes in foreground. I next did washes for sky and middle ground. I used chalk on the distant mountains. Lastly, I went back in and worked the tree. The glue tends to dissolve with the repeat washes.
