The cold winter months provide opportunity for gathering inspiration, as well as, quiet indoor time to create watercolor paintings!
The above painting was inspired by a harsh but beautiful ice storm in east Tennessee in February 2015. Ice coated everything so I not only spent a lot of time making sure the birds in my yard had food and water, I took many photographs.
Look for inspiration in the neutrals of winter and have a great time painting while its cold and wet outside!
