Sheila,

Thanks for comment on my blog. I just checked out your work and must say I like it very much! Consider me a new fan. I especially like the foggy and rainy street scenes. You've got me wanting to paint a moody scene full of atmosphere! Maybe in my next piece?

Cheers!

Just love the tones you achieve in those lovely wintery scenes Sheila. Love the feeling of 'calm' that I see in them. Keep them coming please. They inspire me!

Martin, thanks for visiting. Glad to have inspired you but I think your work already has mood and atmosphere (if not fog and rain). Anyway, I will keep visiting!

Marjorie, the tones are not so difficult to do but I am really pleased that you see "calm" in the paintings - that is what I hope for.

Brr, I remember the Northern winter just like this. Reminds me of Seago.

I'm really pleased to have found your blog. Your work is so inspiring and so full of atmosphere! Do you paint outdoors?

Annie, nice to meet you. I did start to do some outdoor painting this summer but when the bad weather kicked in I chickened out and went out with my camera, so these foggy, snowy paintings are done from my own photos but I photo edit them a lot as the first stage of painting the picture.

Sheila, these fog and snow scenes are really fine. I like how uncompromising they are--they carry a lot of truth--both observational and emotional.
