Frosty January Morning

The lovely hoar frost earlier this week inspired a bit of sketching. I found it really difficult to capture the look of the frost, which to my mind looks like white iron filings.  Also, applying the speckles of white paint really knocks back the colour to a surprising degree.




Sorry about the confusing creases in the background - my bed was the best lit spot in the house this morning - shame the sunshine didn't last all day.

Thanks Janis, I became really obsessive for a few days, applying all the little white strokes, so its nice to know it was worth it.
