Trailers in the Snow Again

7"X5" WC pencil on paper

The high temperature today was -14C at noon. Going to work this morning and coming home, it was a lot colder than that, especially with the "wind-chill factor".

I have had this photograph since around this time last year, but I drove past them today and the light looked much the same so I thought I would give them a shot. I really must give up trying to do anything in colour at night though, the light is just too bad.

It was one of my ambitions for this year to take one a month from last years posts and develop it into a larger painting. I find that looking at the thumbnails actually helps decide whether the composition really works. However, here I am halfway through January and still haven't started. I wonder how much longer I can continue to use my computer breakdown as an excuse?
