Abstract. Sketch of snow shapes
and dark area relationships
6x8in watercolor on paper
We could not drive as fast (poor hubby)
on the return trip due to snowy road conditions.
It gave me time to really look at the color
relationships for a gray day in snow and tree patterns.
Subdued color in the shade still
vibrated gently against the snow
tree branches - using a rigger brush.
Trying to get the feeling of
multiple branches and values.
Fall colors still around, here and there.
I loved the color of these weeds
I have started a new
painting - a snow scene
I felt more comfortable with it because I had
just experienced doing the studies in the car.
I will show it on my next post.
I wish Happy New Year to you all.
I will be so glad to see this year end.
One of the worst in my life!
How I kept painting I do not know.
At the same time, I recognize the full value
of "carrying on." The discipline of
daily painting is to be respected
even when not much creativity
enters the stress filled mind.
The power of prayer can never
be underestimated and the strength
that comes through it.
To my community of blogger friends,
I thank you for the year of
friendship and support.
A life saver!
Onward to a healthy, happy 2015 for us all.
