Frozen Reflections 1 and 2

The temperatures were at 25F (-3.9C) this morning when I went into Peterborough to take down my exhibit at the Dancing Blueberries.

On my way home I stopped at the small park on Water St. to do a couple of drawings of the reflections of the trees on the ice of the frozen Otonabee River.

Just off the shore of the park there was a small island and I did a part of its shoreline.

This section of the island had more coniferous trees which had lovely reflections.

From there I walked along the shore of the park until I could see where the shoreline jutted out into the river.

I could see a few deciduous trees which cast long shadows across the snow as well as seeing the tree reflections onto the ice on the river.

In the distance I could see the far shoreline and I indicated the trees on the horizon  line.

Once I finished the second drawing, I had enough of being out in the cold and it was time to go home for lunch and a hot cup of tea.

At a later date I may decide to make these drawings into paintings.
