Two, Three, Day Two

Today I did three different sketches.  One isn't finished.  This is the one I decided on for my thank you cards.  I printed them off and now just to assemble, address and send.

Now this card is a little different.  From where I am sitting I can see snow on the boughs of the row of pines on the side of the house.  Sometimes the snow resembles people and when I looked I saw a shape.  First I thought an old woman's profile.  Then i saw a dancing troll.  No that wasn't quite it.  How about a dancing goat?  Head didn't really work out.  Then it dawned on me, it looked like a dog!  So I sketched out the white as I saw it, darkened the background in a green and added details like the eyes, nose etc.
