Plein Air Snowman

Today was a fabulous day for a walk. No snow. No freezing rain or sleet. Welcome Mr. Sunshine, haven't seen you in a while! We met this snowman on our walk. I'd like to say I drew him "plein air" in the true spirit of an artist, but no, I took a picture instead. In all fairness, in spite of Mr. Sunshine, it was still pretty cold. And 
Mr. Lumpy here didn't have anything to say, so the one-sided conversation became boring very fast. Plus, I was walking AJ the Alpha Dog, who didn't find Mr.Lumpy The Snowman all that awesome, and threatened "yellow snow" if the walk didn't continue! So - I brought my digital picture of Mr. Lumpy home to my computer, loaded him up on my monitor, and drew him "plein aire a la sofa" - the first sketch in my sketchbook as I slowly come out of hibernation.


  1. I LOVE Mr. Lumpy - he's got so much character! Good thing he retained his white coat, no yellow to be found.

    I hope you are staying warm and safe!

  2. Great snowman Judy...just my kind of guy.
