Winter - painting

This is based on an old B/W pic rather simple but it says Winter to me, I added 2 figures to give interest and a spot of colour, it took less than an hour to paint. I was thinking of adding it to my other raffle paintings but not sure it would appeal. EricWinter Trees 2.jpg

Eric,

That figure in the different hue of coat gives the picture a centre of attraction - once that has your eye, you start to move around the rest of the picture. Excellent.

A bit of both, Eric, speaking from a photography point of view. Humans, of course, take an interest in their own kind - do I know that person?. And the contrasting colour of the coat. Had the coat been, say, navy blue, I don't think it would have had quite as much impact.
