Thank you for telling us how you created the falling snow. It is effective. A cold. cold scene. I like the glow on the snow. It sets a feeling of time of day.
Many thanks Pauline

A super watercolour Neil!
Many thanks John
this is wonderful work Neil.. you know your job so well.. just one look at this superbly minimal work and one is convinced that you have tremendous control over the moody medium.. this is top class water color work.. the soft lit sky presents a fine backdrop to this cool scape.. the gray is wonderful.. congratulation..
Thanks for your kind comments biswaal, agree it is a moody medium and a will of it’s own sometimes
Classic!! How did you achieve those whites? by masking fluid or painting whites?
Thanks Anil, Masking fluid as I never use whites.
Pointed stick or feather quill to save spoiling brushes
