The Lane through Milwich

Alan, you never fail to impress, I like this a LOT

Fabulous painting Alan, the sky is spectacular and I love those 'sunny' highlights along with your use of violet. So much to learn from!

Beautiful painting with a lovely light.

Such exquisite treatment of light and a lovely use of colour, especially the purples Alan.

Beautiful sunlight and cloud shadows from the super sky Alan.

Stunning sky and I love the purples and lilacs running through the painting and how the light falls. Beautiful painting Alan.

I agree with the other comments, Alan: this is super. Love the contrast between sunlight and shadow, great colours too.

I especially like all the foreground marks and colours. Super sky.

The light caught my eye with this painting - it's lovely.

I love the freedom in this one Alan.

Like those scurrying clouds.

Beautiful Alan- I love that sky

Nice one Alan👍

Wonderful light Alan, and colour combinations that take the eye around the scene. The sky is the crowning glory!

So many elements in this painting to like - the lively and colourful foreground, the buildings and contrasts in the centre and the expressive sky and they all work together perfectly. I keep finding elements to enjoy - superb Alan.

I agree with other comments. Super brushmarks in the sky, love the violet marks in the bottom half, in fact, as Shaun says, so much to like in this Alan!

Your sky and the light emanating from it is always such an important part of the painting Alan and this is no exception. Another terrific painting with great tonal quality.

Lovely interpretation of the clouds.

Alan - it's utterly brilliant: I can see very few areas in which it might benefit from a touch more work (right foreground, leading up the lane, since you ask as haven't) but they're just my opinion; the painting as a whole works perfectly.

I missed this one, Alan. Maybe connected to my thoughts ( on the forum) about 4 postings per person which make everything whizz by! For me, it’s the light here which catches my attention, the warm sunny low light which we get at this time of the year. Luvverly!

Love this, Alan.

Hang on Studio Wall

I posted the watercolour version of this local scene a month or so ago, and thought I'd have a go at it using oils. Probably needs a bit more work here and there, but I'll put it to one side for the moment. Oil on board 40 x 50cm
