Onsite sketch for Hiding From the Sun

Went up to Washington Crossing this afternoon, the temperature was 33 degrees and a strong wind blowing. I saw a spot to paint driving down River Road but there was no parking nearby so I had to hike about 250 yards to get to it. There was a patch of snow still left in the shadows of some brambles and trees. I knew I was not going to be out there very long so I just put down all the major areas of the scene until my hands froze up. That wind was fierce. Tonite I will start a painting while the scene is still fresh in my mind.
