Long Shadows 1-3

Looking out the window at the long cast shadows from the trees running across the snow on the front lawn I thought I should take some photographs and do a few sketches as reference drawing for future paintings.

Long Shadows 1

For the first drawing I used the two maple trees on either side of the front gate and ran the shadows along the snow.

Long Shadows 2

For the second drawing I used the maple tree and some of the young beech trees along the north section of the track.

Long Shadows 3

For my last drawing I did the house from the road side of the front gate looking down the driveway toward the house.
