Winter Pond in Gouache

Yesterday I painted this gouache of a small pond in our forest under four inches of new snow. The air was below freezing, but a bonfire next to me kept the paint from freezing.

Here's another blog post showing behind the scenes of the making of this painting.

Beautiful. The golden shimmer draws the eye.

Beautiful vignette; I love the brown/gold/blue colour palette here.

It's these seemingly simple subjects that I love the most from you James.. they are very Andrew Wyeth. You are the master of painting standing water that's for sure.
