The lane is a nice painting, with its warm sunshine, but I think the first one is more interesting.

Calling this Snow and Sun,
It's definitely Snow and FUN!!

What a gorgeous view that lane, ... I recognise it sooo well
Envious about your possibilities to paint them.

Thanks!

It's hard not to compare these two paintings when you post them both at the same time. I like the composition in the first one because it's unexpected. The second one has that lovely softer palette you've been working with. Very nice!

rob ijbema said...

hi kim,
they've got something in common too,
they were so nice to paint standing there in the sun and snow
thanks!

Ok Rob, so this is how you paint snow! Fantastic. I need to try something in watercolour as it's the only medium I brought with me.

Michael Pieczonka said...

love "blue shadows" rob. Great comp, and focal point with the shadow really does make a different type of statement somehow.

rob ijbema said...

when looking for a subject to paint,i nearly tripped over this shadow,that's how strong it was!
