Superb! Champagne grays and rich blues. One could almost be tempted to like winter.;)

This is excellent! You have captured that cold hard biting winter spirit. The colors and the hard lines have kept it from being too sweet as many winter scenes are. I really like this one.

thank you ... just had to use up the last scraps of paint ..
8 x 10 .. not as intense as the first .. more like a walk in the warmth of the inner forest .

Maybe it's a geographical thing, but I much prefer the hard, edgy, feel of the first one. I can almost shudder at the biting wind. Wonderful greys.
The second one is, as you say softer. The play of light is well done, but it is too warm to really say "Winter" to me----more like the edge of winter: first snow, or early spring.

The first is cold and crisp. Captures the feel of a bitter, chilly day. Well done, as always. :)

Yes the first captures the crisp cold of winter but for me the second one captures the silent forest that is blanketed in snow. I think I skied there once. I remeber a forest where my skies were so noisey that i kept having to stop in order to take in the quiet.

I like these terms except for the term "capture"
for me release is the term
or evokes
or unleashes.

well put

I think these are some of the best ones you have posted. The first one is definitely colder and less inviting. The second looks ripe for some cross country skiing.

Nice - feels like ice! The horizontalness contributes to the cold, windy, exposed feeling.

Both good, first one is superb.
In your best work you give the illusion that the act of creating the painting was effortless. I see no signs of struggle. This is pure enjoyment.

The patches of paint in the trees make them look almost 3-D.

Looked again and again and liked them more and more.

They are both excellent. I personally prefer the second one, but the first give a better feel for the cold. I really like them both though. Nice job.

thank you .. yes, the ones that come easy come from who knows where but they just fall on the canvas and they are always better than anything I labour over. I assume it's the same for all artist.

They are both excellent! The second one brings to mind the "enchanted" nature of trees covered with snow. They are definitely very very good.
So many times I have seen trees covered with snow and thought they were so beautiful, but how would I possibly paint them." You" know how.

I totally agree... I like the low lying clouds in the first..which smothers you with the cold. I like the sunlight in the trees of the second one.. Excellent job on both for sure!! Brad
