Thank you Johanna! Exceeding Turner? now that would be some feat, ah, but I can dream lol. But this was a lovely message to return to after so long absence, so thanks again Smile

Regan! What lovely things to say about my work, I am grinning like an idiot now! Wouldn't it be fun to do a collaboration, your beautiful goddesses with my backgrounds Smile

Raymund! hello there!
I think just in your honour I'll have to get some (more) paintings of Scotland on the go, but don't be surprised if you find they have beasties in them. I'm in the mood for beasties Smile

Wow is painfully short of covering your work, but that's the only thing coming to mind. I love the colors of this one, and the paint strokes and the layering. It's all the things about paint that I like to try to get to happen in mine stuff. Great atmospheric things happening, and it looks great as a small thumbnail and in full scale looks like a window to somewhere else! Way to go! Smile

Your work is absolutely fantastic, why am I not amazed! So this is the outcome of all the artwork covering the floor of you're mothers flat, hey!it's working....

I'm all for drooling, drool at will! I wish I could do more at this speed, so I attack the canvas thinking 'will this be a two hour wonder?' and five days later I am still fussing and fidgeting... weeks go by.... Now I need to have a better look at your luscious pictures: from the thumbnails they look good enough to eat!|

Guest's picture

I am drooling all over your color palette (sorry)! This is so simple and atmospheric. I can see how it took you a short time, it's very loose, but you must also be very talented to achieve something this powerful in such a loose style. Bravo!

Smile (Cranks up the gears) Getting there! ....eventually! lol

Guest's picture

Wow...your work is a feast of color.
More more.

Thanks Nell. Smile This must have been one of my quickest paintings to date, usually I hover over them for days, this one just hapened in a few hours. It was a joy to do.

Thank you so much Cynthia! I've just had a quick look at your gallery and now need to go there for a prolonged visit and a general gnashing of teeth and wailing in jealousy, lol.

Thanks Bryan! That sketchiness is part by design and part impatience, lol. Also these landscapes came from my head, so when I do detail work it invariably taes ages as I try and 'see' the picture more clearly. Ack.

Guest's picture

You're landscapes are so beautiful in their simplicity and color...excellent work!

I really like your style of painting. I like the sketchiness quality that youve retained throughout - the atmospheric ambience if you will. Some really nice paintings!

Art at its best.
