Snow and sun at last!

Firstly, a very Happy New Year to my followers on this blog.

I hadn't done any plein air work for a few weeks and was determined to get out some time over the holiday season. However, I finally struck gold yesterday with a combination of snow and bright sunshine - I've been waiting for these conditions for a number of years. I didn't have to go any further than the fence at the back of my garden, since everything looks great in the snow. So here is my first ever plein air snow painting.

Here is a photo of the scene taken before I started:-
