Salt Marshes, Holes Bay


Excellent detail Andrea considering the small scale .....lovely painting.

Nicely done - lovely atmosphere

Thank you so much for your lovely comment Fiona :-) I’m really enjoying painting at this smaller size - there’s so much I want to paint right now - and this size allows me to do that.

Thank you for your compliment Margaret, it’s a beautiful spot, thanks for liking it! :-)

Thanks so much Anjana, that’s so kind of you :-)

Thank you so much for your lovely, considered comments Carole. Very much appreciated :-)
