Walk Two Hundred and Ninety – Snowy track

snowytrack
The snow is beginning to melt – it has dripped off the trees and houses and in the village there’s black slush on the pavements and in the gutters, but it still looks pristine out on the fields. Apart from the remnants of snowmen I think it’ll all have gone by Sunday. This is the track up to the Bluebell Wood.

Delightful scene, captured with a minimum of colours.
We took out a library book this week on watercolour/ink/etc. and Peceli realizes now that you don't just mix up heavy impasto paint, you can wet the paper, make blobs, flick the paint, etc. I hope our walls will stay clean then!
Thank you for reading our blogs and your comments.

I love these paintings of the track and this really IS snow. Wonderful.

Lovely drawing Julie- and nice to have some snow for the project! Our snow didn't last as long and doesn't look nearly as nice as this.

Didn't people whinge a lot about the weather? It wasn't that bad - it used to be much worse more often when we were all younger!

I've got Gord from my Fine Line Artists group telling me what his weather forecast is like in Ontario for the next week and they have months of it!!! I think I've decided though that I can probably think of some very good reasons not to visit Canada in the winter.
