Outside my studio window, the field across the road goes up to meet the woods that climb our western hill.  There are deer tracks and shadows that mark the snow and then the deep woods claim the view.
This is the beginning of the watercolor I made yesterday.  It is a loose composition using the colors on my palette, mostly burnt sienna and ultramarine blue but with the added springtime yellows and greens that give hope to us all at this stage of the winter....

"Woods" - stage one

transparent watercolor and gouache - 4" x 6"

My small finished painting is a loose representation of the snowy field and the deep woods both waiting for spring which arrives in about three weeks.
