  • It's a beauty Barry as for being too tight I do like lose work but I love realistic work just as much and I love this it's lovely

  • Fine painting, Barry, with some beautiful suggested tones. The understated background is great, as is the entire piece. The overall effect is one of peace and tranquillity. It's particularly effective when viewed from a distance, and although you could strengthen some of the foreground tones, I'm not at all sure you need to. This is a beautifully simplified and believable watercolour.

  • Thank you Dennis you can always be relied upon to keep ones feet on the ground. I often find it’s the ones I criticise that I end up liking best.

  • Thank you Brian I am very much into my tones and that’s probably what’s bothering me.

  • It’s beautiful, Barry. I think this view lends itself to more detail.

  • I think sometimes we get a bit obsessed with being 'loose'. In this sort of scene, quite a bit of detail is necessary. Having said that, I think this works very well, instantly recognisable.

  • Thank you Andre and Ellen, I certainly won’t change it. I am probably influenced by the beauty that Jem Bowden did during our visit.
