We had snow mid November a few days before Thanksgiving. It was pretty for a  few days and left. Its been mostly just wet since. A very wet winter has been predicted and so far thats all it is. We have had a few really cold nights but mostly a typical Whidbey Island winter consisting of wind rain and overcast with moderate temperatures. This time of year still requires a few "Snowy" themed ATCs.

From my Watercolor Sketchbook Journal

Examples of watercolor sketch journal pages.
I start with a sketch then add water color, usually a wash on dry paper. I am often doing this outside of the house  and the only water is what I am able to carry with me. Usually only a few ounces. This is where wc pencils and a water brush is handy. I often draw while out and when I am back home I use my regular set of watercolors and brushes.
Food and whatever I have to look at in front of me on the ferry to and from  the mainland are frequent subjects.
