here and there
I love this painting and was trying to think of nice words for drab, grey, foggy drizzle... Then I remembered 'Scotch mist' -- the term my grandmother used, quite fondly, as I recall.
Yes you have caught the atmosphere and the weather perfectly
the soft mist and drizzle and quality of light are beautifully caught :>)
Misty veils are mysterious to me. Not at all drab!!
you've definately caught the atmosphere and i love those sheepy shapes in the grey. from your description i thought you were in scotland:)))
I like the ay you have managed to create a feeling of depth here even though the value range is not very wide.
A fine picture,these atmospheres do not exist in the Mediterranean.
We're so lucky to have distinct seasons. There's always something new to look forward to.I like the restful feeling of this painting.
Hi Rob, where have you been?? Been missing your work and at last, you delight the senses again! Your paintings are a wonderful diary of the weather conditions in Wales and Winter is definitely on the way.
Lovely painting Rob, saw more of your fine works in Brecknock a few days ago
I love the subtle warms surrounded by the gorgeous grays.

Hey Rob..it is so good to see another plein air from you. I love your car paintings and was just remarking to a friend of mine that your car paintings are so successful ...no doubt because you have carefully paid so much attention to light on natural objects. I feel sorry for painters who don't paint from life..! Your work is a perfect example of how painting from life gives work done from photos vitality.Great gray mist..! totally beautiful.
The mood and palette is gorgeous Rob but what I learn from you here is that slight tint of yellowish colour still left in the trees there. Perfect!
Hey Rob!....Thanks for dropping by my site! "Play Misty For Me"...HA HA!....Being on location... alone to enjoy these subdued and mysterious moments... is joyful to "Me" and "You" as well it would seem! Sheep are great company too... gentle souls indeed!Like this one! Good Painting!Bruce

You captured the atmosphere well, Rob. Top marks for getting out there this time of year!

Foggy, gray days are among my favorite days to paint, Rob. Seems you have captured the mood perfectly. Good stuff!

"Scotch mist" YES! My grandad always used to tell me that one.
