Snowy Morning

Yesterday on Long Island we woke up to cold temperatures and a bit of snow on the ground. We had a light dusting before this winter, but this stuck!!! It was too cold to sit outside and paint, in fact it was even too cold to sit in the car and paint. So I did the view out my living room window.
Today is even colder than yesterday...about 13 degrees right now. 


  1. You're too funny, Joan!!! Nothing stops you from sketching..this is terrific! I get so angry that I don't do the same ...its so cold today..I'm even cold in my own house and that's with the heat on!! Ahhhh!! I need the Springtime.
    I love this snow scene..perfect shadows!!!

    1. I meant to also say, nice shadows in the snow! Snow is really hard to paint - all that white on white - you did beautifully!

  3. Hilda - Thanks. I sort of feel lost if I haven't sketched something.

    Tina - Thanks so much!

  4. It looks like you got more than "a bit". Surprisingly, we didn't get any. It looks really pretty coating the bushes and trees.

  5. What a gorgeous view you have! I love this little watercolor, Joan. Do you do large pieces too? I can't remember...
