those misty mornings

those misty mornings...love'm,
you get more for less...less detail and more atmosphere.
this is the road leading into Newbridge on Wye,part of our boys' schoolrun.

OOOh love the mood in this one Rob. I remember these misty mornings while driving my girls to school...in the Uk in 1990. That's quite a while ago now, but I remember it like yesterday as I look at the wonderful mood you've captured in this painting.

really beautiful atmosphere! I love your expression of misty/moody weather!

Fall is probably your favourite season. It is great how you created depth with the warm colored house in the foreground which emphasizes the misty mood on the road. The last pieces are also wonderful. Great to see these.
