The snow that was foretold by the sunrise altocumulus had arrived. It was too snowy and cold to work outside overlooking Jim Day Rapids so I had to retreat to the studio. You can paint outside in light snow. The snow mixes a bit with the paint and changes it to a oatmeal consistency which isn't all that bad - it gives a lot of texture to the final work. I painted without my glasses in order to concentrate on shape and colour - and not fiddle with brush strokes and the finish of the oil on the canvas.
