Frosty Morning Gartmorn Dam

Frosty Morning Gartmorn Dam

It's looking gorgeous Val, it's strange weather at the moment, I expect it will be frosty again soon, saying that it was very cold here last night with a touch of frost this morning but as long as the days are sunny I don't mind!

This is very successful, Val. Love the cold frosty colours. There is a lot of depth in it. Good work!

I think it's very successful Val, lovely work.

Different from your usual. As Alan has said, very successful.

Thanks everyone for your comments and encouragement. There is a lovely little café at this dam and it has been so warm there this last few days my friend and I have sat outside to enjoy our morning coffee. Very continental, not bad for February in Scotland :)

You have captured the feeling of winter. Excellent.

Thank you so much Stephen, Annick and Glennis.

It looks fine to me a lovely watercolour Val
