Contour Drawing/Snow

Demos Done in Classes This Week
These paintings each measure about 6 X 8.  They started out as demonstrations of contour drawing, but with a little encouragement from my students, they turned into snow painting demos.  I didn't do any preliminary planning  -  no thumbnail sketch, value sketch, or composition planning.  The spontaneity of that was fun  -  relaxed and fast.

How is your new year going?  What are your plans and goals?  What have you been working on?  I think we (me?) put too much pressure on ourselves to make a fresh start at the new year.  Well, here it is the 11th of January.  I've run out of planning time.  It's time to DO  -  whatever it is.
