  • it is realy well done the shading in the snow is absolutly fantastic and the trees in the distance as well as the cabins are well done, the only thing that needs a bit of work would be the moons reflection, it just looks a little to straight,if you no what i mean it would be nice to see more of a asymmetry to it, or a wavier look, but all in all a 4/5 really nice work for a second piece!

  • I love the snowy highlights on the trees, the rickety old wooden fencing, and the entire night sky. I would also have never guessed it was only your second foray into oil painting. I do have to agree about the hard reflections and the perspective issue with smaller section of the house. Otherwise this is a very nice attempt. Kudos!

  • Absolutely beautiful. ^^
    The only thing I can see that could stand to be improved are the reflections. And.. the shed, or the attachment on the right side of the house looks slightly off. Great job for a second time though. It's brilliant.
    &lt;3 Keep it up. 5/5

  • Its amazing, your only mistake that I see is the moons reflection, it should be thinner ands smaller. The rest of the reflection depends because its winter annd the water could be iced over and therefore still.
