Sketching snow piles during the melt.
Left: A view of the snow through my acupuncturist's window. Light washes of Schmincke gouache over Staedtler Pigment Liner on Magnani Annigoni Designo paper (journal page cropped to focus on sketch). By the time I got out of there it was 41 degrees Fahrenheit and even more melted water was running along the path.
The Avidors have got me looking everywhere at snow piles. (See Snow Piles: A Fact of Life for links to their artwork.)
Despite the warm days we have been having there is still a lot of snow piled up out there in the Twin Cities. The snow has taken on the glitter of, well, glitter, because of the freeze-thaw cycles. Get out and sketch some of the melting piles today!
