Icy Green with Ducks

about 10 x 10 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper $100. plus tax and shipping

I am obsessed lately with the thought/hope of snow. This morning there was one again a possibility. So I left the house in darkness just hoping it might snow as I painted by the reservoir. Once again the color of the water was than greenish hue topped with the pink of the sky.
When I paint with watercolor I always think of the skeleton of the painting-what's underneath.That will then give me just the right color to play off of. Lately I have determined that winter is my favorite plein air time. The colors are exquisite, making the discomfort easier to handle (plus I can always indulge my Chai addiction afterwards).
