Snow scenes

I am participating in the Strada easel challenge. Last year I managed to get out and paint snow scenes out in the cold. This year I sat in my car, which still counts as paint from life. In my car I can paint watercolor without worrying about freezing water.

I did get out one day when the weather was a little milder. A little 12" x 6" oil. 

Another one painted from inside my car.

plein air painting

Plein air painting this time of year is a good practice in mixing neutrals. 
Oil on panel 8" x 5.5"

I am participating in the January Strada Easel daily paint from life challenge. These are a few of the still life paintings. I paint in watercolor if it is late in the day. I find it easier to photograph watercolor paintings. Most of my oils are photographed using natural light. #stradaeasel #stradaeaselchallenge
