A Painting of the Snow


Whilst it was snowing I sat out in the cold with my waterpaints to paint this. Or did I?

The Mona Lisa or Snow Moaner

Painshill Park, Cobham


Painshill is a place that I have been coming to for over 10 years. It may be my ¬†favourite place in ¬†the United kingdom. Each season makes it seem so different. I am guessing here but if you look back through this blog over the last 8 months there will be a fair few hits about Painshill. Sunday as the ice and snow was melting on the paths i captured the bleak side of Painshill. The lake was frozen with slush on the top and hence the “geeseprints”. enjoy and do please visit.

Birdprints mean bird was here

Snow in UK. Not so bad in the south as they say


Despite warnings of snow related doom in the south it seems we got off mildly. Which means the understanding of the chaos at Heathrow with two thirds of flights cancelled, or diverted to Prestwick, complex to understand. Essentially we had maybe 1-2 inches of snow saturday night which has all melted either sunday or monday. anyway rather than wittering a few photos to remind us of the weather as it was. I wish it all had stayed longer but then I am biased as wanted the photos.
