The Making of "...How Real Soldiers Live" - Phase 3
























“…How Real Soldiers Live”
Jackson and Lee, Moss Neck, December 25, 1862

Since the building and snow-covered trees have been painted, there is an additional color added to the painting. The purple undercoating is barely visible but is strong enough to give a beautiful dimension to the snow. Can you make out what is yet to be painted?
