I was drawn to the shadows on the buildings, and the blankets of melting snow on the round bales of hay. Each fence post had its own little snow hat, too. How could I resist a scene like that?
Colors used were primarily Quinacridone Violet, Prussian Blue, and Yellow Ochre with a little Cobalt Blue thrown in for the sky. The violet and yellow ochre added a nice warmth to what could have been a typical cool winter scene. I spent about an hour drawing and painting on location (in my van) before packing up and heading home.
Snow is in the forecast again for tomorrow. I'm glad I seized the day today!
