This piece was all about trying to capture subtle gradations in the blues, whilst enjoying the colour contrast, all combining to evoke drama within the stillness.

The whole 'wildborn' series is absolutely stunning, but this one has to be my favorite. You perfectly succeeded in all your goals for this painting. Love it. Please keep going with this series!!!

I really love the light in this and the look of the snow struck me upon first view.

Love this piece! Just beautiful capturing of light on the rocks, I've been wanting to do a painting showing red rocks peaking through snow for a while now and this only makes me want to paint it more.

You certainly evoked the drama well; this image looked dramatic even as a thumbnail! :thumbsup:

very nice, very well done. I didnt even realize it was oils and that says a lot with your skill in them, the majority of the traditional media paintings I see on DA are flatter and muddier in color but this could've been digital for all the cleanness and nice contrast in the image.

Thanks a lot - only about my fourth attempt at oils, and I was pretty happy with it.

I always find that these paintings are more interesting when there's a dragon in them.

Awesome! A great and intriguing contrast (it has a feeling of snowing in the desert) and a splendid light :) I love the atmosphere, peaceful yet full of melancholia :)
