This is watercolor on Arches rough 140 lb. Completed during a watercolor workshop with Marjorie Henn. It has a little less "atmosphere" than my usual work, in my opinion, but I've been told it's the best I've ever done by others. Not sure if I should continue in this style (I sold this one) or return to my usual florals.

this really opens up nicely to the viewer.
as an artist you can't walk away from it.
all considerations of "style" aside, your imprint is here, and "style" is meaningless - sure after you become a household word the "style" will be coined for you - it is a byproduct of productization.
this is really good and is beyond style, it is natural and it is art.

lovely, i really like this a lot
i especially like the subtle color variations in the snow and water.....
the only thing i notice is that i find myself looking for a shadow from the largest tree....but it could just be my eyes!!!

Great work, as far as keeping with this style, stick with it. I can hear the snow under my feet and smell the crisp cool air in this painting.

You're right dteleis, it totally needs that shadow. Gee, I wonder if the lady I sold it to will let me sneak over and put it in! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
It was hard for me to paint such pale tones, I usually go for more high intensity colour, so that was one good thing I took away from that workshop. I appreciate all the praise for this piece.

I really like how you did the trees and the snow. I also like the colours you have used. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
