Paint the Snow

Using Wicker White and a flat brush, paint in the snow.

Some blue may show through in areas but let it. We want the shadowy effect that can create.

Recoat the Barn Door

Using the same mix of Cardinal Red and Thicket paint another coat on the barn door. This should be enough to make it opaque.
