The Old Farm Track to Milwich

snowy lane2

Beautiful scenery Alan, I love the track and the trees to the side look amazing.

The formation of naked trees are lovely just now and you have caught them at their best Alan.

Terrific trees and colour Alan.

Interesting composition and tones.

Wonderful, I so want to walk along that path.

The warmth of the sky contrasts nicely with the coldness of the snow, as does the treatment of the smaller trees.

What a way to finish this 'series,' superb Alan.

Great trees and great colours used.

The colours are beautiful and I really like the composition, which to my eyes looks quite daring! It's lovely.

Love the trees, especially the colour on the ones in front of the cottage

Another superb painting, Alan. Above all, I love the textures of the track, the snow, which has probably thawed slightly and then refrozen, and all the twigs. Wonderful!

Great colours from the sky to the foreground shadows and the very good tree,

Superb Alan- a real beauty

It’s the trees that do it for me Alan. The simplification of the ones near the buildings and the understated magnificence of the larger trees. Superb!

They said it all, Alan, this is again a great painting!

Great comments, thank you all very much for your support!

Very effective simplified palette and tactile texture to the trees. Lovely Alan.

Wonderful Winter trees Alan and I really like the composition in this one.

Just love those middle distant trees and the icy snow Alan. Lovely painting!

Terrific painting - colours lovely, Alan

Superb painting, love it

Love that big tree!

Beautiful as always Alan.

Just lovely, Alan, a really great painting!

Stunning Alan - these winter scenes have captured the cold and bleakness of winter but your use of warmer tones create great balance.

Hang on Studio Wall

A continuation of the farm track that I painted in last weeks post, just a few hundred metres further along. I’m always inspired by the shape and structure of old trees, and these two closely grouped together immediately caught my attention. The final one in my recent series of local snow scenes - thank you for all your positive comments throughout! Jackson’s Belle-Arti board, 40 x 50cm.
