Paintings for a snowy night

Couple of paintings I was working on simulatneously. It always interesting to see what happens when you play paintings off of each other: the contrast in the work helps you to understand it. The motivation behind these paintings were to test my knowledge of line: my relationship with the inherent characteristics of line and how it evokes mood in the painting. Colour plays a significant factor in determining the mood aswell but in these cases, it's really the line that stands out as the main expressive feature.
