Beautiful painting. Love the warm golden brown colours of the grasses against the greyish bg. Also love the light in this one.

Lovely job! I like the colour combinations, warm colour at the front does not take away the feeling of cold.

Gosh, I'm sorry I didn't get back to this sooner to thank everyone for their kind comments. Thank you!

Susan, I especially enjoyed seeing the progress on your acrylic painting of this scene. I like how you brought the elk closer, too. It's always fun to see how different artists interpret each scene.

Thanks again, everyone!

A lovely relaxing painting that gives you the feeling of nature at it's best on a cold day.
I like the way you have painted the snow with a slight impasto feel to the paint, this helps to create texture and depth to the painting. Well done!:clap:
