With the days getting longer (we are having about 8 hours of daylight now) and a couple of days where the sun actually appeared, I'm coming out of hibernation. I seem finally to be over my cold and went for a long walk on the beach yesterday and took my gouache paints with me. It felt great in the sun though it was still below freezing. I ended up painting for about an hour from the car and watching the sun go down at 4.... the little gouache I did might or might not show up on my other blog where the small ones go.

I've been continuing with the monochromatic gouache paintings.

gouache 6x9" on CP Arches

This one is a little larger than the others. Its from a photo I took last week from my kitchen window during our big snow fall. I started with a transparent wash over all which remained uncovered in the sky. I'm loving not having to save my whites. I might splatter some white paint for snow flakes.... or not.

This is painted so beautifully, Carole. Those sonow-covered branches are amazing!
