First Snow :: Première neige

Today was the first time that a considerable amount of snow fell… there was about one foot that fell in Rigaud. When you wake up in the morning and all of the sounds are hushed, it is a telltale sign that it snowed. I painted this scene with three main colours. Cobalt blue, Aureolin yellow and Rose madder genuine with a bit of Burnt umber. I had to put aside the first painting that I did as it was quite terrible… it looked more like a Prismacolor drawing than a watercolour painting.

Aujourd’hui était la première journée où nous avons reçu une quantité raisonnable de neige… environ 1 pied, et ce matin, encore dans mon lit, je savais qu’il avait neigé car tous les sons étaient feutrés. Avec les changements climatiques, j’ai tendance à m’inquiéter si l’hiver québécois tarde à venir, donc ce matin j’étais tellement contente ;-) J’aime l’hiver!
