View from a Window - Sunday Morning.

It may have been rapid, Alan.....but it's fresh and alive and clean, and a very attractive result. Lovely gentle subtle palette too.

You are weak Alan, why not resist and paint something worthwhile?<br />Brilliant work and watch the forum.

Well, I can see at a glance you enjoyed doing this Alan. The confident sweeps of paint and the lively flicks of the rigger!lol. I think Ann has described it is alive!

Yes, full of life. One can feel the atmosphere of the snow scene. If it is as cold where you are as here, I am pleased you were indoors. You gave lots of sketches now ...

Beautiful I really like the way the trees contrast with the snow.

Your painting is gorgeous Alan, I could be sliding down the hill..LOL. :)

This is very stunning Alan. There is the perfect light of a snowy landscape and the feeling of silent land. You have the perfect window for painting all seasons.

What a view Alan! A magical snow scene.

Lovely to see this Alan, no snow here on the south coast! The colour palette you&#39;ve used is very effective is the blue/green Viridian?

Exceptional Alan, the small touches of intense colour are beautifully placed and really make the painting come alive.

Thank you all so much for your encouraging comments, I always enjoy reading them.

Lovely scene, Alan, but I&#39;ll bet it was cold outside!

Mmm, nice snowy landscape, just like the one in my town right now :)

Beautiful, love the darks against that snow Alan.

Super study Alan with great limited palette

Perfectly captured with choice of palette and strokes.

Love the immediacy and the atmosphere of the piece, Alan.

Hang on Studio Wall

How could I resist painting this snow-laden landscape this morning, well, I actually did two, this is my first effort. Oil on canvas board 16 x 20in. Rapid sketch as you can see.
