Winter-ful...painting snow...

Blue Hen Falls   watercolor   11 x 11
This has certainly been a winterful winter....after weeks of slightly warming temperatures and chilling rain, we are back into the grips....the trees and ground are covered with the fluffy white stuff.  Last chance to paint a winter landscape.  Painting snow in the spring seems, well, just wrong, like looking at a Christmas wreath in March.

"Blue Hen Falls" is the result.  About half of it was painted during class.  I was terrified to complete this in the studio at a separate session....worried that I would be unable to continue the earlier color palette, the earlier soft rhythm.  I guess the muse was with me on this one.  I am pleased.
