Snow Scene #7

4" x 6" original watercolor

Another view from the same wonderful
property. More woods and snow. More
great shadow play. What you need to know
is that on all three of the snow scenes all
the white is the paper. This is the accepted
method in watercolor, and difficult to accomplish.
So look over these three again with a new eye.

It was my turn to take Mom to the hairdresser today, which
took all of my morning. Then I went to a client to go over
the terms of a commission, and then to get groceries for a
new pasta dish Linda was trying. Well worth the stop, I had
two helpings! Our carpenter stopped in to check on some
work we need done and somewhere in there I squeezed in
my blog painting. If I had known I was going to be that
distracted today I would have picked an easier subject.
I had an uplifting comment from a client today, he said yesterdays
painting reminded him of a Robert Frost Poem...
