Pink Sky 1 - A Work in Progress

Well after having two days of not quite making it above the freezing mark, with the high being 30F (-1C) we have plunged once more into the deep freeze.

I can hear the boards on the house cracking and popping as the temperature drops and the nails holding them in place shrink with the cold. It is currently -8F (-22C) and the temperature is to continue to drop throughout the day. But at least it is bright and sunny outside.

A winter scene seemed fitting to work on for today. I pulled this one out that I had started back in November with my Beginner Watercolour class at KAGS (see post on 12 December 2013).

I started by adding some various greens to the needles ad adding more detail to the trunks of the trees as well as adding some of the dead and broken branches.

I will post this painting at a later date once it is completed.
