Still cold but heartwarming beautiful.

Still cold, indeed but much to beautiful to stay
indoors. Tucked up real thick especially your feet
and not going too far from a pub or other possible
hot chocolate it's a real treat to practice all those
blueish grey tonals, especially when the sun is interfering
than all becomes soooooo awesome, ...

Nice! The water is masterful. With great efficiency, you managed to have the surface reflect the sky while still looking transparent!

Rene, you have to come over to this side of the Atlantic. Snow and cold are plentiful right now.
Averaging -10 to -15C the last few days. The wind takes it down another 10C.
The car painting could have been a place in Canada. Excellent work. You can feel the cold.

Ahhh yes! You've definitely captured the cold in these stunning paintings! Well done I say!
Time to treat yourself to a soothing and delicious hot cocoa (and don't hold back on the mini marshmallows ;-)

Happy New Year to you and yours Rene!
