Kristin: 73 & 74 Grey windows
It simply hasn't stopped snowing or raining the last week, or maybe longer, I can't remember anymore. So these paintings come from the relatively clear, but still cloudy and grey morning we had today. I just painted scenes out the window from my living room floor. I just got my hands on a copy of Cathy Johnson's book Artists Journal Workshop, and she gave me the idea for this technique of working darks and lights on a grey wash. I mixed my own grey, so it has more color variation and then couldn't help coming on top with some colored pencils.
