Wintery sketching

This is a view looking out my living room window. Even though this sketch is more than a week old, the view is still pretty much the same. Yes, the ground rises up from our house to the road, and then continues on up beyond that. Here in the mountains there is really no level ground. You may notice the bit of a leaning tree in the upper left of my sketch. After the terrible winter storms of last year, leaning trees are a fairly common sight still, in our area. This winter has been a little calmer, storm-wise, although we have had plenty of snow already. I sketched this scene with Neocolor II crayons, washed with water.

I love the quote, and I love your luscious blue shadows. What a wonderful, chilly sketch!

I could so easily live in the mountains. In fact, it is my dream place to live. (Ok, I also dream of living along the coast of Maine somewhere as well.) Your views are fabulous, Ann and provide you such glorious paintings! I love this little gem too, especially that small little pine.
