Oh I love this scene! Beautiful snow colors and sky - perfect cold atmosphere created here. Just enough details w/o over doing it. The dog is great from body shape to fur colors and texture! And your animated children are really well done.

What a great scene and it does feel cold and snowy. Good job on the kids and dog.

Really fun painting! The kids and dog look great. The one building to the right of center seems a little wonky to me. Maybe it's the windows line being opposite the roof line. I'd be tempted to add a little snow to the roof too, and a touch of smoke for the chimney. But it is real nice as is. :)

Thanks everyone, I agree the house is a bit wonky need to fix the conservatory roof to line up with the house roof, adding snow is a great idea, it is my house will need to fix it thanks Lesley

You've really captured the cold atmosphere and love the story. Two children out with their dog ready to create a smiling snowman! Great job...

The pooch and wrapped up kids give a nice sense of fun in the snow

Great painting. Definitely a lovely winter scene but with a nice warm brightness!
