moonlight service

This is in acrylic on a 16x20 canvas,This offered me 2 challenges -- it was a night scene and it had snow. I added the horse and carriage to the scene. It seemed appropriate that if there is a church someone should be going to it. Once again I had to deal with perspective. I just loved the warm feeling emanating from the church even though its looks cold outside. I didn't want to overdo the light on the snow. The biggest challenge for me was keeping it looking like night and still get the details in. I have to say whether its all done right or not I feel good about this painting. I do enjoy your comments and critiques.

I really love this painting. You achieved your goal, in my opinion. When I first looked at it I thought of Thomas Kincaid...the light and dark are well balanced. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work.

Very good it reminds me of a famous painter whose name escapes me at the moment bur he does lots of these scenes and sells them printed on plates etc.
