Early Snow

We finally got a respectable snow the other day so I went out back and tried to get the falling snow against the trees and the layers of landscape behind.  

landscape with falling snow against dark trees in foreground, fields, houses, and trees in background.

Here's the paintbox in situ. The thing hovering over the the palette area is a roof I made out of an old canvas stretcher and a piece of plexiglass to protect the paint from getting totally buried in snow.

Pochade box on tripod in snowstorm with painting in progress. Palette area partially sheltered from snow by wood and plexiglass panel clamped above it.
