Snow snow snow!

What a nice surprise to wake up on Saturday morning with my garden covered in snow. I spent all day thinking of going out to make a painting but got to the end of the day and realised I was about to miss my chance. I decided at the last minute to catch the last moments of the amazing sunset and did a quick 20 minutes study from my living room window (not crazy enough to go outside in the freezing cold). Here is the result:

My garden in the snow

Still in the snow topic, here is below an other winter landscape study I did a few weeks ago, this time from a photograph. A bit like the white flowers, I find the snow a very satisfactory subject to paint since it changes colours depending of the light. I'm hoping I will be able to do more snow scenes over the Christmas break...
