Sun and snow

In March the snow melts fast. Most people would be happy about that but not me. I prefer my wheelbarrow with snow on it, and I’ve been waiting for some to fall so I could sketch it again before spring. This morning it was mostly covered in white from an overnight sprinkling, but by the time I got around to painting it, it was half melted. Then the sun came out and it was fully gone by the time my sketch was done. Let’s hope I can get one more of these in before the daffodils come up.

Sketched in a Field Watercolour Journal with a Winsor & Newton watercolour set and some snowflakes of white gouache.

    Gorgeous painting! I particularly love the tree trunk. I’m not familiar with a “Field watercolour journal.” Is that a name brand? Thanks in advance!

    I love your wheelbarrow pictures, no matter what the season or weather conditions!

    Its like seeing an old friend again. Your use of gouache is very skillful. I got the book by Nathan Fowkes using gouache and watercolor on landscapes. He uses it more like acrylic or even oil.I prefer a more transparent mix . (I used acrylics for a long time as well as oils and it just doesn’t have the beauty of watercolors.)Love your gouache paintings.

    Good Evening dear friend Shari,

    Very pleasant sketches as usual. The tree trunk is the special feature in this sketch.

    Your wheelbarrow paintings always make me smile. They are such “ordinary” objects but you bring out the magic in them. Lovely!!

    The dull rusty red wheelbarrow might make a nice background for bright yellow spring daffodils


  8. Always love your wheelbarrow paintings. Bring it to Quebec City. We’re supposed to get 20cm today 🙂

      Good Evening dear Larry,

      Also shovels and spades are to be added.

      Shari gives, every Person, place and a thing in this world, equal value and importance to be the subjects for her Art and she is right.



  9. […] I will enter you in a draw for one of my sketches. The winner can pick either the shells or the wheelbarrow sketch I did in March. I’ll do the draw on Saturday at 5 pm. In the meantime, keep drawing and stay […]
