It reminds me of early morning on the water when the mist is rising. Nice movement in the trees too.

Got to agree with Spyderbabe.
And it's a nice painting but I can't see a frosty scenery, which is of no importance really ...

Hello, nethra. As photographed, your painting looks very monochromatic. Is it? I like what you've done with the fields and trees but you've disected your painting in half with the golden stream. The rule of thumb (don't ask me who's thumb?) states that when you divide a painting in half either with a stream, horizon, or any other straightish line, each half fights for attention. I think this painting would be stronger if your stream ran 1/3 way from the bottom of the canvas.

The land's edge toward the top where the bank of trees begins could also use some definition....perhaps some darks at the base of the bank of trees.

Nice work, and there's talent here.

JMO.

Thanks sugar tree gal and dana design for your words.
I've tried attaching the pic again.Even though this looks dull than the original pic it does not give full monochromatic look like the previously attached image.
