Rob Kulas "Close to Home"

Thanks Lynn for the invitation. This is my first post but I am enjoying viewing the work  of all the creative talent here.
This has been a harsh but beautiful looking winter for many people around the country. I have had a great time sketching winter scenes the last couple months. This is the view looking out my front window. On this blustery day we were in the midst of another snowstorm. My driveway and neighboring farms all seem to connect by one large blanket of snow.
Sketched from life 9x12 in a Strathmore  sketchbook. I used a 9B graphite and some white gouache.

  5. Welcome, Rob! Lovely pencil sketch of your area covered in snow. Looks like you have a lot of it. Where do you come from? We had a lot here in NY but most of it is gone now.

  7. I love this painting with snow and the car! It is beautiful, but reminds me on how it can be in winter time.

  8. I like how much depth your shading has captured it would have been so easy to lose the vehicle to the background
