It was too cold for drawing today (-8 C) and my hand sorta seized up, but the forecast is for grey and wet weather this weekend and I had an urge to draw anyway.
Obsessive maybe, but harmless.
Another exercise in patience is setting dead-fall traps. They need to be really twitchy to work, but that's alright now that you've developed such patience by starting fires.

Minus 1 C is just on the edge of barehanded comfort, but the other obstacle is that watercolour doesn't dry very quickly. Sort of the opposite of painting in the hot sun.
Hope I don't get kicked out of Urbansketchers for breach of Manifesto!
