Snow Scenes

In less than a month and it will be Christmas and in keeping with the season I thought I would like to do a couple of landscape drawings with snow covering the ground.

On my first drawing I decided to do one of the snow covered trails on my property that ends at the Snelgrove Brook.

Cold and Calm 1

It is only during the winter after the ice has frozen that I can reach my property on the other side of the brook, otherwise I would have to drive over to the Buckhorn Road to access that section of my land.

For my second drawing I did this pathway from the concession road that runs along my south fence line and again ends at the Snelgrove Brook.

I thought to create interest by leaving a trail of footprints in the snow.

Either of these drawings could be easily developed into beautiful paintings, which I may do at a later date.
