Frost at the Farm

Wind and Snow

The cold weather seems to have come earlier this year. Already we have had more snow than in recent years, together with sub-zero temperatures during the day. Familiar scenes have been transformed and colours have become almost monochrome. I love to paint this farm. It is just down the road from where I live and often catches my eye as a subject. The buildings all combine nicely to make a unified area of strong tone. Also it stands on its own on a bit of a hill, so that it makes a nice shape against the sky. On this occasion I liked the way the old buildings seemed to stand strong and firm in the face of the elements, as they have for a hundred years or more.
