sunset ice - 12" square

Sorry about the glare but we had snow ALL day again! It was only supposed to be "snow showers," implying spaces between bursts of snow but it didn't let up.........I began to drive to a Bristol Independent Galleries meeting but turned around when the unplowed road changed my mind. I have been experimenting with different types of under paintings...........loving the purity of watercolors and the way the white paper really makes things glow, I have discovered Gamblin's transparent colors. I did my usual sienna on most of the canvas but used pure transparent orange for the sky..........I think it worked well.
