Fluffy Tracer Bullets

18 Jan

18 snow

So we were supposed to have snow. I didn’t believe a word of it. We hardly ever have snow in these here parts because of our micro-climate and the Gulf Stream. But today, it happened. There was snow. Not a lot. Just enough for Husb and I to get in a brisk walk to the beach in a horizontal gale with white fluffy tracer bullets stinging our eyes.

I made the poor man cower behind a statue out of the wind while I scribbled furiously into my little Khadi handmade sketchbook with contes, pastels and compressed charcoals in various shades of black, white and grey, which just about summed up the landscape. Almost monochrome. And freezing.

It was fun scribbling the snow on top of the smudged drawing of the beach – almost calligraphic.
