Snow people

New teaching responsibilities make painting really difficult on some days.This was a super quick (brush only) sketch done from a school window. I looked out to find the kids from the school daycare enjoying the fresh snow. No sooner had I grabbed my brush and drawn a few of the kids in the snow than they were called back in by the teacher. This is a good exercise that will help me in the future when I want to add figures to my paintings. Looking at the shapes and drawing them with a brush is really good practice.

    This is the sort of sketch I would love to get of my grandchildren. You have really captured people here. Nicely done. If you showed this to the teacher she would be amazed and thank you deeply. I know this.

    It is so wonderful to watch the process of your work…It is refreshing to see an artist who isn’t afraid to continously go out of her comfort zone to learn and grow….(and share that experience!)
    Thanks for being a role model! Sue

    Sometimes simplicity captures the whole mood perfectly.
