Welcome to the Jan-- Mar 2015 Project. It is winter and here in Utah we have had a lot of snow. It reminds me that snow means ice, and I think both ice and snow are good painting subjects. So, for this projectct, we are going to paint from the theme: Ice & Snow. Your painting must be painted specifically
for this project and be watermedia. Submit your images to me via email. Send title and comments about the paintings and painting
process. Let me know if it is okay to link your email address when I add your
image to the project page. Also, if you have a web site, send that address so that I can link it also. The project end date is Mar 31, 2016.

The seasons bring a lot to us watercolorists, more variety, different color, and light that changes over the seasons. I love the seasons because they bring this variety. During one of these winter days, the light out of the south fell across the snow and made some beautiful shadows from the trees in my backyard. I grabbed my camera, stepped out the back door and took about 10 photos. This painting is from one of those photos. Painted on Arches 140 CP. Size is 20"x28."

I enjoyed painting this watercolor, as I haven't done a snow scene in a very long time. I enjoy snow from a distance anymore. I am slowly getting used to painting in a looser style. It is painted on 9 x 12 Strathmore 140lb watercolor paper.
Attached is my painting "Two Sisters."Painted with Winsor Newton, Holbein and Daniel Smith watercolors on Arches 140 lb. Cold Press, 5.9" x 11.8."
Half sheet watercolor “Winter Creek.” Tried real hard to make it feel good and cold.

Thanks Maury for the challenge of snow and ice subject. As I have not made painting snow and ice high on my painting list I learned a lot. I decided to keep it simple and just paint from my imagination. Some place I would like to be inside that cabin on the right side of the painting. Warm and dry with ample supplies to sustain me while I painted with solitude.
