Winter Morning I - A Work in Progress

Yesterday I spoke too soon about there being no snow in the forecast; overnight we received about an inch (2.5cm) of snow. The temperature has dropped to 14F (-10C) and there is more snow called for later in the afternoon.

We did however have a nice sunrise this morning and it inspired me to capture the lovely pinks, mauves and blues in the sky of the new day.

The colours were reflected in the soft shadows spreading across the snow, seeming to give it a warm glow. I then set the painting aside to dry.

Later when it was dry I lightly indicated where I would place the trees.

I will post piece at a later time once the trees have been painted.
