Yesterday’s snow vanished in the afternoon rain.  The colors were totally different this morning in spite of the fog.

Warm Morning Glow

I used the same limited palette that I used to paint yesterday morning’s fog (see the post on Creative Color Blog) with the addition of Sap Green.  The pigments are Scarlet Lake, Cadmium Lemon, Cobalt Blue, Sap Green and Titanium White.  I had Sap Green on my palette yesterday, but the weather conditions prevented me from dipping into it.  As I mixed my first color, the sun broke through the blanket of fog and the landscape responded with wonderful, warm winter neutrals.
