  • A very powerful effect, Alan. bringing the darkness and threat of more snowfalls to the fore. It's bleak and even a little dangerous looking, and yet there is a beauty that I find compelling. Excellent work.

  • Gives a real sense of the bleakness of winter. Excellent.

  • The mood is beautifully captured. Plenty of these heavy overcast days recently. Luckily down here, snow threatened but not delivered.

  • So very effective, Alan, superbly under stated. the shadows and overall foreboding sky are especially believable.

  • The sky is typical of more snow to come, it looks smashing Alan.

  • Not much interest, but my thanks to those of you who took the time to comment.
    I purposely left it a bit understated and resisted the temptation to highlight areas of snow, because you don't see that in these conditions.

  • Yes, I see that, Alan, and I thought it was the foundation and strength of the painting. It's almost impossible to resist a few highlights here and there, yet this piece carries drama and demands attention because of your restraint. An apprehension or foreboding emanates from the canvas. That's art for you.

  • A real feel of snow to come Alan.
