Michael Chesley Johnson said...

This is a really beautiful piece! How often do you get much snow?

Art with Liz said...

Stunning Rob! You make plein air look so damned good, especially in the snow!

Carolann said...

We have more snow and I feel I should paint it. This morning was stunning with a pink glow in the sky at dawn. No photograph would have done it justice. I think you would have though.

Beautiful Rob, I know you'r a bit worn through through all the snow now, but it's not showing in these paintings they are just as stunning as usual.

Paint on you Welshmen.

Bruce Sherman said...

Hey Rob!.... Same here! Snow and more snow... but at least the temperature has risen from the -26 to -31C few days of last week. The wind has been very high as well... dropping the windchill dangerously to -40s C. One does NOT venture out into that situation in this part of the country!... so time for some studio "play"!

I love the play of shadows and light in this one on the firs.... beautiful Winter... to some!

Good Painting!
Regards,
Bruce

Beautiful, Rob!
The strokes/texture of your brushwork remind me of a Jack Frost painting upon a window on a cold morning!

Hi Rob, your work is outstanding. I love your snow scenes, your colors in the the snow are brilliant, the shadows and the dappled light. Your are an inspiration. We are getting snow Saturday. I will attempt a small study. Thank you for sharing.
