Lovely rendering of the snow, great tonal variation is the key and you have got it just right.

There's a nice contrast of warm and cold in this painting.

-18 C, brrrrrrr! I'm glad I live in the warm north: only -5 C here.

lovely - i wondered if you would be out painting in the snow! I guess you have to work very quickly - does the paint ever freeze??
