Winter street, Thomas Pringle (2D)

Title: Winter street
Name: Thomas Pringle
Country: Denmark
Software: Photoshop

Done between work for fun. Since a lot of my other images are rather dark I wanted to paint a daylight winter scene. Partially inspired by a Craig Mullins piece. Created in Photoshop.
Hope you like it Comments and critique welcome.

If you tried to achieve a happy christmass mood you rather didn't success :]
I like this picture a lot. It's very interesting and makes me really feel the atmosphere. In fact I've got similar weather, dirty snow and dark people in my city now.

Beautiful! Well done! Brrrrrr!

wow! very cool image! Maybe too much texture everywhere, kinda flattens it down a bit. Some directional light would do good as well. But then again, it rocks anyways!

The cold and wind is very convincing here Its great to see such a loose, painterly style.

Thanks guys

Thanks for all the feedback very kind of you all!

Ranath. Thanks for your input, much appreciated Yes, I can see why you think
the texture thing is pushed a bit far. I like when the painting gets flattened
a bit though- makes it look more traditional. Its also an effective way to insinuate
details- and, I suspect its also a matter of taste!

Lighting wise it doesn't make much sense having it directional imo. The scene is
fairly brightly lit, which is caused by the light being bounced around by all the
snow- that pretty much counters the direct lightsource. + If the sun was shining
the sky would most likely be blue which again would affect the colour of the snow.

Cheers, T.

you're right, just my instinctive solution to try adding directional light to make it less flattened, because it's what I struggle with my work. But like you said, matter of taste. : )
