Poplar 8"x10" watercolor/gouache

I can't seem to get enough of the palouse snow and poplar trees.  They make for good companions one having simple washes and the other detailed lines makes for lots of fun.

Mini Mountains, watercolor/gouache 5"x7"

Mt. West Park
View of Wendy's Glacier
Parking lot Pass
Mt. Winco
These piles of snow from the plows are all that are left from the massive snow we had.  My five year old son and I have been imagining ourselves as a tiny lego men exploring these massive glacial mountainscapes.

Snow on the Palouse, watercolor/gouache 5"x7"

We had tons of snow about a week ago,  this is all that remains after warm temps and rain.  The good thing is that it makes wonderful patterns on the hills.

Watercolors in the Winter

I loved the light coming between these bushes and their shadows.
The way white rolling hills of the palouse contrasted with these tree trunks couldn't be passed up.

I couldn't resist these wonderful leafless trees and the hazy mountains.
