Definitely a typical grey misty day here in Suffolk too. I admire the way you convey the hazy atmosphere. I can feel the damp air. Well done.

Atmospheric ad accurate, great depiction of a foggy day.

Admosfera well achieved, despite the gray theme really like. These mists can not in all parts of Spain can be seen, much less in the area where I live.
I have the habit of sending a hug, with friendship.

Very atmospheric. I'm glad you put the car in, otherwise it would have been a bit spooky!

Nice work and brave to face that weather. Here we have a nice sun shine day, and is really rare have some mist for intent to painting.
Best regards
