The Snow Gauge – Watercolour and Acrylic

Not too much snow here, compared with some of our friends in the States. The only way to attempt my favourite Brrrr scenes is to look back to other years. This is a scene from the winter of 2010 -11. We had record falls of snow then. This was the year that I forgot to put the garden furniture away and we lost it under the stuff. The table, about 4 feet in diameter, started to collect snow, every day, which I measured. John, jokingly referred to it as the “Snow Gauge”. We ended up with almost 40” of snow that winter. There is still time for that record to be beaten – and for more paintings.
