  • Loose and vibrant...may I rudley ask was the water so very blue?????I would have thought that it would have had more browns and darks in it with all the overhanging foliage and muted sky?

  • Hi Robert, we must be both in water mode ATM... just posted a stream one myself. I like this - especially your foreground foliage - the left bottom corner is awesome. I see where sylvia is coming from, but I always think water is seriously up for interpretation and I like the way you've rendered it here. I don't think your sky is particularly muted... so to carry the blue into the water makes senes. the trees are cracking BTW. Limited pallete? Cheers, Ade

  • Thanks all. I am having trouble painting still water just now - at least in oil and acrylic. Lost a bit of confidence, I think. I trace my (temporary!) decline to this painting - I have got very immersed in detail - although when you look, the detail in this is suggested rather than carefully drawn. I'd like to get away from this approach, but will post a few more of my recent pictures so you can see what I mean. Limited palette, yes: a bit over-dependent on pthalo green, by the look of it. And no Sylvia, I don't think the water was quite so blue - comes of using phthalo blue, which takes over. Does depend a bit on where the light's coming from, but there's not a lot of reflection in this water....

  • I don't think running water reflects too much...I can see what Sylvia means about the water being blue but then that is artistic interpretation...I really like this painting I think it's got a lovely charm to it and it has movement

  • I have not been visiting these galleries lately and I have missed a lot on beautiful work being added ! Your gallery is getting extensive and of great value. I love this painting for its freshness of interpretation. Great work Robert.

  • Have browsed your gallery Robert and it has been a lovely place to go this morning, certainly conveys great feeling and I keep coming back to Bridge at Harting. I think it comes off beautifully and I say if you feel certain colours on the day do it, its what I call the you part at that moment. Thank you for your comment on my Regatta, yes it is a bit blue isn't it.
