Black Capped Chickadees

I almost never wear gloves when painting, but as you can see, I have them on for this ink and watercolor painting.  One of the coldest days of the week, I painted several, finding that gloves don't hinder my work as much with ink as oil.  I can not use them on my  painting hand, I need to feel the brush on the paper.  On the heated ones I've ordered, the tips of each finger are uncovered (with a flap to fold over when needed).  Working fast, I didn't have trouble with the water freezing on the paper - but I wonder..... just when does that happen?  How much time do I really have out there before I have to add vodka to my water brushpen?  Painting number 1826 in 1826 days.
