Snowy Dawn:

Sometimes I do a drawing just as a plan for a painting, like this one for a snowy dawn in the woods by the dandyland studio.
I did the drawing in the woods that morning, just as dawn was coming. What initially caught my eye was that the white snow was darker in tone than the eastern sky. I knew how to handle the colors - the drawing was to note the general look of the hill and trees.
