The snow in the front, if you pull a line down from the end of the left side of the stones to the end of the right side of the stones, and then all of it beneath that, that snow is absolutely brilliant! if you see the snow closest to you there, it is so spot on that it seems totally real! (also that snow a tad to the right of this square i've pointed out) the trees on the horizon also look extremely real!
Those 2 I really wanted to point out as points of realism.
You might have wanted to put a little bit more effort into the well for getting that one somewhat more realistic, for the snow laying on it's top instantly gives away its believability to looking truly real. Still beautiful though! (please don't get me wrong in that, I love the way your stuff looks. I only give my opinion on what I see to maybe help you in the only way I can offer.)
The house and the trees in front of simply do not feel right and is the reason this work is not to be mistaken at first sight as a photo. The way the house is drawn is yet again, very beautiful, but the snow strokes take away a part of the realism; And due to the fact that you have a perspective in that house that seems to be slightly off, it also immediately draws attention to it.
I totally love the work you've put down, and hope you might have some use to the things I just said. ^^ keep up the great work, it's always a pleasure to look at your things
The spring sunshine would not rid the country of the recent snow fall. The Humber Estate was no exception. In fact, Gerald had just left for town to pick up medicine and a few hens for dinner when it stopped. The morning was beautiful and serene. Sure to be a bright and blue day. The well had even begun to fill up again. Jess looked out her shared bedroom window and wished the twig-like trees would sprout their leaves. They looked so much better with a full crown. Jess thought about getting out of bed today, but was reminded, painfully so, of her fever. The Humber Hillock stood quiet and ready for warmer weather.
