Catbells in winter viewed from the Lingholm Estate, Painting by Rob Miller

Catbells in winter viewed from the  Lingholm Estate
oil on canvas board 30x40cm
Snow brings out the best winter challenge for a painter, the hunt for semi tones and vague intonations of colour, the flattening and softening of once hard shapes in the landscape, create a multitude of challenges. I think this ones okay, but I'm never sure whether I should have left it alone at an earlier time in its development. Its been interesting to paint similar views each day from the same gardens in Lingholm the view is the same but what I see each day has been so different.
