A lot of snow on the ice. Very nice! On picture!!! But what I like the most is your figures! They could fit anywhere in a colder dio. Great painting!

An impressive art-work which you have created with the Valdemar figures. A little bit more of blood would been suits well to the battle and a good contrast to the white snow.

Thank you so much for your kind comments and feedback.
Regarding adding some blood to the snow, to tell you the truth I am very tempted, however I'm afraid that the scene will look too gory for this small scale. Also I have researched a number of "Battle of Lake Peipus" pieces by some of the great masters, including Mike Blank himself and noticed that practically none have added blood in their snow, probably to keep it 'clean'. They only dirty the soldiers' clothing and armour with mud and some blood stains. But then I might be wrong... :eh:
