Snowmen



I don't know why I have a fascination with snowmen/people.  Their simplicity and brevity of life makes them appealing.  The reflected colours from their environment create levels of interest.  The character that emerges depending on placement of facial features is endless.


This afternoon, after a busy morning I got cozy on the sofa and created these little snow characters in watercolour.  They're in a watercolour Moleskine sketchbook and tiny, just 3 x 5 inches.  Just right for experimenting.

Jeanette, your snowmen/people are delightful. I love their little round noses. I don't think that I have ever seen snowmen with quite this expression. Time well spent on the sofa:-)Well done!

I can never resist snowmen Christiane. I think I could make a lot of these given spare time. :)

Pat, thanks, they are cute and keeping them tiny means not spending too much time creating them.

Thanks Cindy, I wanted something a little different in terms of colour, so hoped that worked.

Rhonda, expression is endless with these characters.

Thank you Sue.
