I went out today into a mixture of snow flurries, sleet and rain to paint. I found this subject just waiting for me in a section of woods behind and above my sister's house. I also found quite a bit of mud at the same location. ;)
Will probably paint this one larger at some point. I took some good ref pics while there, and the simple act of being there and painting has stuck the scene and atmosphere into my mind. So larger might work with this one.
I used an umbrella today, which I don't normally do, but I needed to protect the canvas and palette. Including a pic of the set-up and subject.
