It's Snowing

Watercolour
20cm x 50 cm or 8 inches x 20 inches

It is snowing!  Last light of the day and the cows are wandering off to find shelter in the lea of a hedge somewhere.
I love it when the leaden, snow laden sky lets go its hold and soft white flakes begin to fall, they bring a strange silence with them.

I sooo love your winter pieces. I love the silence the snow brings. At the same time I find that sounds usually too far away to hear become audible.

What a lovely piece -- I'd love to walk into that landscape and stand perfectly still as the flakes fall softly all around!

I saw your wonderful painting on Katherine's Making A Mark blog. What a beautiful silence you have created night and snow blend well to say "peace." Love the elongated format as well.
