As I drove down the street during our previous blizzard, I saw a woman brushing snow off her car and I thought to myself, now that's the perfect Canadian winter scene.

The perfect picture to paint.

I tried drawing it from memory - no luck.

Google to the rescue! The photo I found, and copied in watercolour,  was very similar to the scene I saw, except that my model was wearing a big tuque with a fluffy pompom. The lady in the photo was using her umbrella to knock off the snow. I turned it into a red brush. I like the pop of colour.

Here is my full painting:

And here it is, cropped differently, as a square format.

I can't decide which I like best.

I titled it simply "Winter".
