We had sun overhead, snow on the ground and enough warmth that my watercolours didn't freeze on me so it was a perfect day. I am happy with this. There is a lot that I would do differently next time but I am okay with it. The sun reflected off the ice of Coote's Paradise was almost blinding but it gave us nice long shadows and warmth as well.
I love watercolours however I am looking forward to much colder weather as an excuse to play with oils for a while. I am trying too hard with the watercolours and I think that a change will be good for me.
