Baby, it's cold outside!


I like it - beautifully executed Michael. It seems to be the night for ‘cool’ paintings. We are moving into Summer here.

Love it Michael, makes me feel 🥶

Lovely Michael but I hope you're wrong!

I do like this Michael. It looks exceptionally cold and crisp, love the contrast of the darker areas in the bottom left and the single branches going up to nowhere.

This is magical Micheal. Love the simple palette, the lights and darks and the frosty beauty of it.

Very good winter feel, I often feel painting from the imagination produces more striking images, we are unlikely to invent unnecessary detail I suppose.

I love this Michael, chilly and atmospheric:)

Thank you all for those nice comments. I think you are right Stephen about the imagination forgetting detail. David- coming into summer ...... I wish! I was tempted Fiona to put some foliage on the top of those branches but going up to nowhere seemed a good idea! Katy Heather & Carole - glad you think it works.

Hello Carole No.2! Thank you ...... makes you feel you need an extra jumper 😊

Thanks Paul. Often the simplest of paintings seem to work better.

Thank you Margaret 😊

A very clever atmospheric painting, Michael - so chilly I need a mug of hot chocolate!

Hang on Studio Wall

Another little dabble out of my head. Not a precursor of weather to come I hope!
