Cold, windy day after rain.

I tried to get some plein air action on this cold and windy day in February - but gave up at some point and had to finish in the car - hands were too stiff, paper tried to escape and eyes were watery from the wind.

On the image below you can see how I situated myself in the car to finish painting - brown sketchbook is the one I was working in at the moment - but for these sketches I pulled a sheet of nice, absorbant watercolor paper from Arches.
