Winter Work

This past month I haven't been doing much drawing. I have a large watercolor and color pencil drawing in progress. I have also been doing matting and framing of my work, making a great effort in getting caught up with that. I have a dozen done so far, then ran out of matboard. While waiting for more matboard I worked on my drawing.
As is usual for my WC and CP drawings, the background washes simplify doing the sky and snow and the colors help set the mood: a clear, cold winter evening when the deer come out to feed. Three Trees at Quarry Hill, 17.75" x 24" Water color and Prismacolor and Faber-castell Polychromos color pencils on watercolor paper.
I forgot to post this drawing last time. This drawing spent quite some time in the planning stages. The inspiration was a herd of horses spending their winter in a bare yard and large shed for shelter. This pinto horse standing in front of the open shed door basking in the winter sunshine caught my eye. There were a lot of adjustments done around him to improve the composition. The window was moved and the foreground hay feeder was from another part of the yard. I also experimented with a tractor tire feeder that was there too, but decided I needed something in the foreground that could overlap the background. Pinto, 11" x 16" Derwent Drawing on tan Canson Mi-tientes.

  1. The most basic form of this setup includes progressive jackpots which might be} shared between the bank of machines, but could include multiplayer bonuses and different features. One reason that the slot machine is so worthwhile to a on line casino is that the player should play the high house edge and high payout wagers along with the low house edge and low payout wagers. In a extra traditional wagering game like craps, the player knows of} that certain wagers have virtually a 50/50 probability of successful or shedding, but they only pay a 온라인카지노 restricted multiple of} of the original bet . Other bets have the next house edge, but the player is rewarded with a bigger bigger|an even bigger} win . Theoretically, the operator may make these chances obtainable, or permit the player determine on} which one in order that the player is free to choose.
