Fresh Snow

Fresh Snow
Watercolour
16 x 26 cm

As predicted, the snow has returned, and it's deeper this time. It's nice having the roads free of traffic, but I wouldn't mind a spell of better weather now, so that life can get back to normal for a while.

Best Wishes to everyone at Christmas.

  1. Merry Christmas Keith. Personally I'd like the snow to last a little longer though I appreciate we haven't had it quite as bad in the Midlands as you have up north.

  2. Well it will be nice to have the snow over Christmas, so if I can get out to Thurso later in the week, I don't mind it staying a bit longer.

    Happy Christmas to you and your family and all the best for 2011.

  3. Best wishes for you as well Keith, ...

    Is it possible to watercolor in these temps? It looks like it, it looks like it very well!

  4. Yes it's not too cold at the moment - around 0 degrees C, so just about possible.

    Happy Christmas to you and Annette.

  5. Hi there Keith in snowbound Scotland!

    Seems most of the northern reaches of the planet world are snowbound... if not paralyzes by snow!

    Fresh Snow... painted ever so freshly! A perfect picture postcard rendering... just in time for Christmas!

    Continued good painting... and Merry Christmas Keith!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce

  6. You've captured this so wonderfully... I can feel the cold air and the 'freshness' of the snow.

    Enjoy your winter and the wonderful palette presented by snowy landscapes.

    Hopefully the snow won't hinder your Christmas activities and enjoyment.

  9. Hi Bruce,

    Isn't it amazing how wide-spread the snow is? It feels like an ice age at the moment!

    A very Happy Christmas to You and Yours,
    Keith

  13. It was minus 14 degrees here this morning and it is snowing again tonight! In spite of seeing a bit too much of the white stuff outside I find your painting very lovely and fresh looking. Merry Christmas and all the best for 2011.

  14. I don't think we're having it quite so cold as you Caroline. It was minus seven last night. It was cold enough for hoar frost yesterday though, so everything was covered with spiky crystals. As for the moonlight on the snow, well that's magical don't you think?

    Hoping you have a very happy christmas,

    Keith

  15. I hate you're snowed in but all the better for me because I'm gettin' Keith Tilley snow paintings on my computer in the warmth of my studio. I love the snow paintings. Bundle up, drink hot beverages, whatever it takes and get out there and get me more.
    Merry Christmas!

    I hope you have a very good Christmas.

  17. This is very nice Keith. You've really captured the soft freshness of the snow and the painting just invites you to step into the scene. Excellent.

  18. wow another nice journey across the pond--haven't stopped by for awhile and what a beautiful tour of light and land! Also so interesting re the sheep and the challenges re food/prices.

    These snow paintings have that gorgeous clean light --what i love most -besides the obvious colours in white -is the hush- -inviting and allowing one to really see and immerse in the scene -am a wee bit jealous of all your snow - here in Niagara there is barely a dusting and it rained on New Years..

    *just read comment re water colour outside--i did it once and it froze into crystals--not one of my most brilliant ideas--someone told me to replace water with vodka because it doesn't freeze...?

  19. Hi Jan, I hope you get some snow soon. It's turned warmer now, so there's none here either.

    Gin or vodka in the water does help a bit. It puts a bit of spirit into the painting!
