Dec 28 above freezing

This is probably the last of the days that the temps will be above freezing so I went out to get the last few opportunities.  Next week I’ll be back down south. Weather this time of year tends to get very overcast and colors tend to fade and become desaturated.  Growing up in the Great Lakes region, the winter can be quite monotonous and you have to really push yourself visually.  This is the bridge on the Briar’s golf course and the forest is a lot next to some rental cabins near the 18th fairway.  Sometimes it is important to try to capture all types of scenery and some may lack the drama of a sunset or even water, but just getting out and being in the moment you have to find interest and practice technique regardless of the ultimate outcome.

A rare day when the clouds broke and the sun setting on a mild winter day.

Christmas Sketches

It has turned into a green Christmas, but that has allowed me to go out with water colors and do some sketching.  The mist did create some issues with keeping my colors on the paper as they started to wash off, but it’s a great time to capture the affinity and subtle tones of a warm Christmas.

The snow has not fully melted but the temps are finally above freezing so I had some time to capture the transition.  The colors are still muted and fall like, but the light is much brighter, if that makes any sense.

The landscape guy that comes around trims the cedar hedges so tight that it almost looks fake.  I love his attention to detail as there seems to be no branch out of place.  The snow lands on them and it is almost too good to paint but I did and hopefully another day above freezing I will try to get another sketch done.
