Jack Frost by Amy Crook

Jack Frost, 10″x8″ watercolor and interference watercolor on Arches cover black paper

Most of the paint on this lovely black paper is white, but mixed in there’s just a little bit of interference blue. When it’s in normal light, the blue just looks white like the rest, but in sunlight or strong indoor light it adds a sparkle to this piece that makes it really magical.

Just like winter, it’s something lovely and stark that holds hidden depths of color and light.

And with the weather we’ve got out here in SF, Jack Frost might even pay me a visit this year — brr!

Above, you can see a little bit of the sparkle peeking out of the chilly frost. Below, you can see the painting in a temporary frame, like a window on a cold winter’s night.
