North from Tormain Woods – Watercolour and Acrylic in a Watercolour Moleskine

This is from a photograph taken on December 26th. I don’t like to depend on photographs but, as I recently pointed out, I am running out of options for snowy “Brrrr” scenes. Thanks to Susan, who saw the original photo on flickr, for putting the idea in my head.

I usually walk, from the woods, down this path towards the main road into our village but the path was heavily filled with drifting snow. I had to backtrack and return the way I came. It all seems a distant memory since all our snow has vanished. The old Scots saying, “Vanish like Snow off a Dyke” (something which WILL happen, frequently quickly) seems appropriate here.
