Warmth on Winter Snow

Warmth on Winter Snow
Watercolor on paper, 9x6

I'm not sure whether or not I have used this watercolor block before, but after painting - I find it very difficult to remove the sheet from the block!  This is Aquarelle Arches 300lb, cold pressed, 100% cotton.  I have two paintings on the single sheet, and now I can only hope that I don't ruin either one in the removal process.  I used drawing gum as a resist in the sketching stage, then quickly and loosely dropped in color.  The sun was just showing through, giving a warm brown light to woods and water.  Painting number 737 in 737 days, and Day 6 of the 30 Day Painting Challenge :)
