  • It doesn't seem to matter what medium you work in Stephen, your greens are always great! Always variable and always believable, not easy to achieve. Love it!

  • I agree with Fiona, very versatile, love the reflections

  • And it is lovely, Stephen. It has a softness typical of pastel and which I just cannot seem to achieve.

  • Many thanks Fiona, Glennis and Ruth for your lovely comments, much appreciated.

  • You get a whole different look with pastels to watercolour. There is a smooth softness and a rich denseness of colour which is most attractive. I agree with Fiona over your greens - lovely variety and nice light in the trees. Also great colourful reflections. I think this has worked really well.

  • Thank you Thea for your kind remarks, I also like the rich colour you can get with pastel, a bit messy though!

  • Your paintings have a real tranquility about them, Stephen. This one is superb - there's such a quiet restful air about it.
