Small paintings for wintertime

Wintertime encourages me to reflect upon the year spent in Alberta's landscape. I do by making small pictures using gouache, sometimes assisted by watercolour pencils, from pictures I have taken on my outings. Here are a few examples. All are 4" by 6" or smaller.

Terry love the way you've honed the design down to the bare essen tials. Simplicity is so under rated in this society. Do I detect a "tonalist esthetic" in some of the work:) Delightful!
