From photos taken by a friend during his trip to Canada I chose what I liked most.

This is the first, oil and knife, full winter;)
Hope you like it

Silvia, sarà pure in corso d'opera, ma hai già reso la maestosa magnificenza di questo paesaggio apparentements sconfinato e le sensazioni e le emozioni che suscita. Bravissima! ;):):):)

Grazie a tutti!!

-Alexandra:) I imagine the scene .... really want a hot chocolate:p.Thanks!!
-Many thanks Wenkat, though here is not really cold yet I pretended to be in Canada;)
-Dear Evart, I'm glad you love it. Thank you very much:)
-Thank SCP:), I enjoyed working in this painting
-Dear Manna....it's a very cold landscape:). Thanks for replies!
-Thank you Gzairborne for your kind comments:)
-Grazie Sabena:D:D
-Cesare, :eek: in corso d'opera? Ho sbagliato a scrivere 'in progress'. Significava solo che è il primo di una serie sul Canada:rolleyes:
Pazienza, si capirà al prossimo. Grazie dei complimenti, sei sempre molto gentile.:):) (Under construction? I was wrong to write 'in progress'. It meant only that it is the first of a series on Canada:rolleyes: patience...
Thanks for the compliments, you're always very polite)
-Grazie Oriane, you're very kind

Many thanks for replies Sabena, McKlay and Cesare.

PSX Cesare, non è un trompe-l'oeil...è proprio lo spettacolo che si vede alla finestra:D

Though i look at this amazing country called Canada through Australian born eyes, I must say that i think you've captured its essence wonderfully. Though outside my window currently theres a lot of black ice and resulting accidents from an usually late winter :D

Silvy, that painting transfered me to Canada where I spent 2 years nearby in the late 60's. In it I can feel the cold rip through my bones.. Very expert way of using the colors and the instruments.. Excellent!

Great work Silvy! I never saw these on the first go. Great stuff to be shared. Plus, I don't think Canada has changed all that much. :D So they're still current.

Thanks all:):):) for gentle comments.

@justjean, the photo i've used as reference was shot near Montreal, Oka national park i think:rolleyes:

@Geoff, my comment about dirty snow is an answer to Juz's message.
I think that your canadian snow is shiny and white, but in other land with much pollution, not the same.:(

@Many thanks S5T68IS2TA for your words.
I have been in Canada(Toronto) for a week during a conference six year ago. A wonderful country:):)

@Thanks Margi:)
@Thanks D Akey:)
