I fully admit this is a repost of a painting from 2 weeks ago on the landscape forum, but in support of the new forum, I figured I'd post it here, too.

I generally don't paint urban scenes since they are tricky in matters of perspective, detail, and scale, but this image, inspired by yesterday's weather, begged to be painted. Wind-blow snow roars through the center of downtown Glen Burnie, MD on a cold February night, obscuring everything for the few drivers on the roads.

Acrylic painting: 14" x 17"

Great textures - the square and roundish shapes left and right look a bit unnatural to me. Dont know much about snow scenes - we very rarely see snow!

I remember this Matthew. Terrific mood and you have portrayed the chilly snow well.

Glyon: the shapes are multi-story buildings, so they would appear unnatural. Thanks for the comment!

Bhavani: thanks!

Matthew - The atmospheric conditions are well captured as I can surely feel the cold & wind - Well Painted ! - The main car appears to be a Volkswagon Beetle ?

Oooooooh, you sure know how to paint a snow storm.
It looked and felt just like this outside my house today.
I think I even can hear the thunder sleet in this.
