plein air painting / winter / VA.


We had some cold and blustery weather, some snow that didn’t last long, and some rain in the past 2 weeks. The sky stayed mostly cloudy with some peeks of blue. Most winter days here, the temperature goes over 40. ( Freezing is 32, our Celsius reading friends. ) I wear gloves that I cut the finger tips off, layers and hiking boots. I don’t mind the cold for an hour or so, while I’m concentrating. Then when I take a break I feel cold. So I force myself to continue a little longer, then I go home and warm up. Wind and rain can stop me from going out to paint. The best thing about hanging around in the swamp in the winter is, NO MOSQUITOES !! 🙂
