Winter paintings became common after the Renaissance period. It is a special time of the year with a cold climate. It is the nature that paints the trees, homes, and ground with beautiful snow. From an artist’s point of view, it is a bit challenging and interesting to portray the soft white snow on the canvas.
Compared to Autumn and Summer, Winter is rarely taken as a subject for painting in the west. This season is characterized by snowfall, white trees, and snow-covered roads.
