Frisco Nordic Center and Marina

H's winter break, so we've been in Frisco for a few days taking her to ski school. I painted Mount Royal from the Frisco Nordic Center. A bright day, plenty of snow, and the mountain had the look of a cat with it's back arched. Amy T. said the mountain had a lot of personality when I posted it on Instagram. Watercolor, approx. 75 min. ##

The moon was out after dark so I went back to paint the hill again in the dark with mixed results. What exactly is the color of distant mountain snow in the dark? But it was a good exercise. The Nordic Center had too many lights so I parked in the marina and painted from the car. 45 minutes or so. Intrigued to do more at night.
