Hello WC Friends,

I think this is almost done. Will still tinker a bit as I contemplate. This was inspired by a recent photo I took in my area of the Missouri river and railroad bridge.
Suggestions/critiques to help me make it better are appreciated!

Superlative Ruth!
You have the Hoar Frost done here so beautifully!
There is a great sense of depth and distance here.

Really atmospheric, I can almost read a novel in this piece. Set in the 'olden' days, when the bridge was new. This is just such a fun piece. or sad, or moody, well, perhaps all of the above. ....:music: :music: :music:

Thanx 4 posting, this pleaseth our eye.

Ohh Ruthie this is beautiful!!
LOVE IT!!
only suggestion I would make would be to add some shading to the ice/snow on the branches on the left.. some purple/blues to give it a more 3D look to the branches, as well as some more darker tones on the base of the dead grass, blending up especialy on the left which is closer, for more depth! Maybe a little darker in the edge of the road and snow.
The rest is awesome!!

Oh sending Thank Yous to All for your kind comments! Actually, it really wasn't very cold that day! And when I first took the photo, I didn't think about painting it---too many trees/branches. But it only took a few days and I was ready to jump in and try. I may even do another version only much Bigger.
Yes, Patti, you are right! I crave my quiet studio after a day of my K Kids!! LOL

We just had a day like this and all the trees looked so beautiful covered in frost. You did a great job capturing that!
