Warm vs. Cool

The whole painting was rather cool (cold if you are talking about the snow) until I painted the antlers. While you need the whole body of the caribou to complete the painting, it is the warmth of the antler colors against the cool mountain background which is the more important part of the piece. And why I wanted to paint this.
I have some warm tones in the foreground which give the impression of tundra in the fall.
