Winter on the River


Excellent snow scene, the little men and dog add life to the painting.

Fabulous atmosphere, really like the water

You imagined it very well Brendan Lovely scene, beautifully done.

Beautiful scene.

Beautifully done! Lovely colours in the trees and reflections in the still water, The sharp dark boats against the snow really add to this watercolour. My word, it looks cold!!

Striking contrasts and marvellous reflections Brendon......gorgeous.

Great water Brendan

This is stunning, Brendan. The rich mellow colours contrasting with the heavy snow, and the perched boats, and subtle positioning of the people and dog, creates such a beautiful scene.

Your painting has impressed me. I admire such skill.

Beautiful scene, lovely colours

Beautiful painting, so atmospheric.

Love the dark passages; relieved with lights, and the bruised look of the sky, merging with the tree-growth at back. Happy New Year Brendan. John
