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.

I made another visit to the Verandah to draw my summer version.  I’ll try another in the fall.

First major snow fall of the year, Dec 29th 2012.  Watercolors are great for travel but the water starts to freeze and you have to be fast with the brush.  My Ipad would short out in snow fall so I could not risk it.  I came back inside to additional details with adding opaque white to create more contrast.

Here’s a digital sketch I did one year ago when it was much more milder and from 180 degrees on the other side…

This was a quick water color study at the Briars Golf course.  The water froze in my cup so I had to finish it back home.  That is the frustrating part of outdoor sketching in the winter up north it’s so cold you don’t have much time to get things down.  The brushes stiffen up and the colors stop flowing.   This is an interesting tower that stands right in the middle of the course.  It’s basically deserted inside and it’s made out of concrete.

The River entirely froze before I could get a nice sketch with the water contrasting with the snow…now it’s just one big white flow.

sutton snow

The first snow is always exciting.  This is our first snow in Sutton, Ontario.  This is our front lawn, and I hope to do another version of the back.  The Briars is next door and there are a lot of opportunity to capture snowscapes near lake Simcoe.  It’s not even winter yet, but there will be plenty of opportunities to capture the snow in Ontario.
