Winter Landscape

I tried out some new paper today (a free sample of some new Richeson pastel paper, but it was so "toothy" that I really didn't like it). I also tried to do a winter scene from my recent trip out West. I know that when you want to improve at something you must keep practicing...but these landscapes are going to do me in. Now that I see this scene posted, I see that I should really have made the more distant mountains lighter in value, to try and get an atmospheric effect...but I hate the paper so much, I think I will just quit.
