Happy New Year

Ducks on a frozen pond

Happy New Year!
 I'm just back from my Christmas hols in the freezing UK.  I took many lovely photos of the wintery conditions, only to have my daughter accidently delete them all!  That means I will have to go back again when there is snow again...but for now what I had was quite sufficient!  I came back with a streaming head cold to blue skies and 20°.
I felt sorry for the ducks, wherever I went ponds were frozen over and the poor things looked quite desolate standing on the ice. 
I did get some great reference photos of frozen leaves and the tiny crystals that form around them which I will play around with for future paintings.
