30 Paintings in 30 Days: Day 3

Aargh - I'm falling behind!  (I'm busy doing a portrait commission as well).

Here's Day 3 - a sun-snow shower on the Rideau Canal Skateway. I was on a bridge overlooking the canal when I took a photo a few years back.
It took me this long to decide to paint it :-)

Having some difficulties working so small, especially trying to paint figures alla prima .

But that's the gift of a challenge - you get to practice, try out new things, and see where you need to 'brush up' LOL

Now - on to Day 4 - hmmm, should I stay with the winter theme, or go abstract?
