January Thaw

When I saw the mist rising on the Habitant River this morning I got my gear together and headed outside. 

I wanted to catch the atmospheric effect but I also wanted to practice some atmospheric perspective.  

But, the January thaw (+9) also brought rain. So, I quickly laid down some wet-in-wet without even touching my water supply (you can see the raindrops on my easel). 

Then, I retreated back inside for a through-the-window finale. Gouache was used for the foreground snow. I’m not sure I met my goal but I think I got the mist right… and it felt good to get out… so yay!
