Yes, we won't be using so much blue soon!

I like the light in the tree branches in this one.

Boy that warm sunlight feels good against the snow you capture so well. Lovely painting.

Carol Horzempa said...

Wonderful snow painting. I love your work!

You inspire me to go out tomorrow and paint in the snow even though it will be only 29 degrees. I will have to paint very fast.

Your development of snow lighting is inspiring. I see a progression looking back at your snow paintings as far back as 2007. Some like "Lambing" hint at your future and these sunny snow paintings are truely evolving mastery.

Burrr, if I was standing next to this painting I would expect to be shivering and to see my breath. Great job capturing the chill. The pink underpainting was an excellent choice!

Art with Liz said...

What fantastic light you've got in this one. One beautiful painting. (I've been in the northern hemisphere 2 weeks and am now tired of the snow! How do you guys cope with it???)

Mike said...

I am visiting my sister-in-law who has spent a lot of time in Wales visiting the castles and she wants to know where your castle pictures are.
