Run upstairs to put some more clothes on,
put snow boots on to go outside and make this
capture, where the snow already has fastened
on the underside of some branches …
One Word Sunday: light
Marvel at the transparency of the ice.
There comes a time though that you feel miserable
because all you can think is that it is
too cold. From my psychology job I knew what to do:
shift your focus on something else.
Something that is so compelling,
it will take your mind busy for a number of days.

Ever since I painted this watercolor
between 2014 and 2018, what bothered
me is that it does not portray what
I want to show. The daunting thing
was I knew I had to start a new one.
Was it going to be better?We will find out!
Actually, the snow helped me to focus on black
and white, instead of colors. The easiest to start
with seemed the black. I basically reversed my
method going from light to dark,
now painting from dark to light. After I
pasted the liquin on the tree branches.

Since this was a new method I moved very slowly.
Watercolor is very unforgiving.
One mistake, and you will see it forever.
This is what I needed to shift my focus on “it is so
horrendously cold” to “what is the next area
I am putting my focus on?”
Have to say, I am ten times more satisfied
with my second!
Another time I will tell you what happened
when I was painting these rocks plein air.
Am extremely happy we don’t have any glass in our front door. The down side, never any reflections visible!
Hopefully not long until these crocuses
will show themselves!
