Beautiful Alan. Your trees are great and I love that distant light in the sky.

Frosty wind made moan...Winter indeed Alan.

Excellent Painting Alan

Great atmosphere Winter it is

Winter colours are excellent 👌

Great winter scene, love that brooding sky!

'In the Bleak Midwinter' is a favourite of mine and I have to say this painting will also be a favourite of mine.

Thanks guys, greatly appreciated

Very chilly!

Beautifully bleak Alan

Can almost feel the crunch of the snow underfoot Alan.

The weight of the sky is terrific. Gives the piece that Wintry feel

Gorgeous Alan-just love these wintery scenes of yours-

Wintry feel for sure, Alan, great atmosphere well painted

A fabulous chilly atmosphere in this atmospheric painting. The tones and colours are perfect and I love that splash of blue on the left of the painting.

Certainly looks it Alan. Another beauty.

Oh my! Alan, this is fabulous! The colours in the sky, the snow and the trees, all, just right for the scene.

A super winter scene Alan. That broody sky helps to highlight the snow nicely.

Excellent painting Alan, great sky.

The title certainly suits the painting here. Really has that bill factor and works well.

Impressive piece, both sky and snow are terrific.

Beautiful painting Alan.Like very much the sky and trees.

Beautiful painting Alan, lovely winter feel

Love it. Very atmospheric. Certainly has the chill factor Alan. Great choice of colours.

Great response… thanks for your comments which are always appreciated!

Very atmospheric, I like it.

A piece that has it all - dramatic backdrop, atmosphere and great composition. A superb painting, Alan!

Looks bleak and wild. lovely work.

A frame, in my opinion, usually helps - but it's good to have an option. Wondering if we'll ever see snow this/next year, the weather changes so much - we had a very brief spattering last week, but nowhere near cold enough to last. Ideally, it'll not start until I've got all the food in, will then snow over Christmas to New Year's day period, then thaw. One is ever optimistic. Fine painting, cold and yet not cold - there's warmth in the sky and trees, colour in the snow.

Beautiful range of winter colours.

A super atmospheric painting!

Lovely! Superb lowering sky

Hang on Studio Wall

Oil on 30x40cm Panart cradled board, which I’ve bought from the POL online shop! I’ve not tried them before, but was quite impressed. The obvious advantage is that you don’t need a frame, but of course you could if you wanted to. The finished painting, I posted the first stage last week.
