We had snow where I live before Christmas,but then the seasons seemed to become disorientated and as we left for Canada the 18th of December was like a day in Spring.
The Holidays have come and gone but the snow still hasn’t arrived, at least not 600 meters above sea level in Switzerland.
Today I went to my Watercolour class again and it brought back happy memories of snow in the cottage country of Northern Ontario.
Funnily enough I don’t find painting snow so difficult,maybe because I love the colours that I need to use, soft and vivid blues,pale pinks, light greys and yellows.
Of course we were painting from photos ,and luckily nobody suggested going outside to paint a warm winter day (you all know that I havn’t really got enthusiastic about painting outside.I did try it again in Thailand but the paint dried up)
So painting today was the best of two worlds. Being warm and cosy in the middle of snow.
I am enjoying my hobby again,and I think at last I might even be improving.
