  • Love this one Jem

  • Your strong, clean washes always stand out in the small images on the gallery page Jem. When we see them enlarged we can appreciate them even more. I like the use of shadows here, especially on the house at the end off the pathway. The foreground light grasses / weeds work well too against the dark tree foliage, very attractive painting.

  • Pure watercolour at it's best

  • I do love these "educated" brush strokes - in other words, you draw shapes with your brush rather than just filling in: it makes all the difference; and then your palette is completely identifiable - your work can be recognized even in a fleeting glance, which I always think is a good sign: amongst watercolourists on POL, that's also true of Rupert Cordeux, Alan Owen, Thea Cable, and just a few more (Oskar Thorarensson, for example, plus a few others).

  • Thank you all for your generous comments. I do appreciate it a lot. With this one I wasn't happy with how I dealt with the barn roof. Didn't go quite to plan initially, where I had intended a more simple dry brush rendering, so then it got a bit too bitty and elaborate. Oh well!

  • Also agree with all the above comments. As an oil painter, I have such admiration for water colour done well!!
