Clever you Carole, wonderful picture for a christmas card :-)

Many Thanks to everyone for all your lovely comments, the snow just a week sfter we moved in, it was fantastic, the old gentleman who lived in the first cottage was snowed in, all the neighbours came out to dig the snow so we could give him some coal and food through the bedroom window, it was a great way to meet all our new neighbours.
Stripes I do print them off and attatch them to a card adding some decoration, will put a picture on so you can see the finished result;0)
Sanbaz this painting is watercolour and pastels, like mixed media.
Sandra thanks for putting it on your favourites and the branch was broken with the snow. I have just logged on and can't believe I can reply to all your comments [wonder if Peter as solved my problem];0)

Oh thats good,Carole...and not before time too.It must have been very frustrating...That is a heartwarming story
of meeting your new neighbours..sounds as though you had a nice little community there..no wonder you miss it...

how lovely that you look after each other as neighbours. The neighbours we have here give a helping hand to each other. It makes such a difference. This is a lovely painting and would make a super Christmas card. Snow is one of the more difficult of pictures to paint so well done you!!!

Wow Carole its beautiful, love it.

26 Oct, 2011

I love it Carole, how could you bear to leave it? Your picture is lovely and evocative...made me feel snow:-))

26 Oct, 2011

 

not tried pastels jet carole, a few use them at art group, i may try one day :o)

26 Oct, 2011

 

Thanks BA, Its a long story but basically the cottage was delightful but very tiny [one bedroom] and there was no parking, so that did become a problem ,it was also quite remote and when my husband retired we felt it was time to move onto something a little more modern and within reach of facilities. We spent 11 blissful years at the cottage and I will never forget those happy times and good friends we made there.

Sandra I love using mixed media you can get great effects with it ,give it a try ;0)

Pp this is a great scene, how brilliant. It's perfect for a Christmas card. I have never tried pastels. I love using oils and acrylics.

27 Oct, 2011

 

Thanks Homebird, Oils are my favourite , but havent tried Acrylics yet, What subjects do you like painting ?
