Snowy Branches

I've wanted to paint this ever since I took the photo last year.  I loved the way the snow looked on these branches.  I don't usually like masking fluid, but branches with snow on them is impossible to do in watercolor any other way.  I did the background wet-in wet, darkening it a few times to make the snow really pop.  I have a lot more photos that I took that day, references for more paintings?
