Some snow, more to come – Watercolour with some Gell and Body Paint
Painted in a hurry after this morning’s snow. This shows the view from the end of the road looking south.
Towards the Pentland Hills in snow – Watercolour
Inspired by an early snowfall this morning I decided to try to capture the trees higher up in the Pentland Hills, south of our village. Around the same time I was looking through sheets of wood veneer for a project I’m working on and came across a piece of Magnolia. Eureka! The wood was the same colour as the sky so I now have conifer trees under a magnolia sky.
Snowy Woods – Watercolour
A familiar scene at this time of year when frost or snow seems to add more colour to the local woodlands
Winter Birch – Mainly watercolour with some acrylic body paint
Just a smattering of snow in this woodland scene. Current temperature was around -1C but soon warmed up and the whiteness vanished. Boo!
Snowy Colours – Watercolour
Done a few weeks ago when we had more snow. This was an attempt to spot as many colours in the snow as possible. I am always amazed at how things are never “just white” as the shadows and different areas reflect the light. I was once told that warm sky colours, in snow, should be complemented by cold ground ones and vice-versa and this seems to work for me,
My garden under snow – Watercolour with some acrylic
Its been a mixed winter so far with some snow falls which don’t last as wind and rain soon shifts the stuff. As we tend to get our heaviest falls at the start of the year perhaps this is still to come. Come to think of it, that’s about now!
