  • A wonderful painting! I also paint in watercolour, however, I mainly paint in oils, so not an expert in watercolour in any way! However, in this painting I see good composition, great use of light and shadow, and love the way you captured the sky..good for you!

  • Super watercolour, just feel as if I could walk along here and feel as is I would battle with the wind. My only reservation is the ship in the background, just dont think it needs to be there. But otherwise just love it. Thanks for showing it.

  • This is great. You say you struggled - but in the end you got there. The colours are lovely... I like every thing about it.I long to produce such a picture. Keep at it, it's certainly working!

  • I love that combination of greens with darks. The whol painting is attractive and positive. ps Thank you Robert for your kind comment.

  • Syvia, it's my over-literal mind; the ship was there, so in it went... I tend to agree with you, but don't want to try lifting it out. Many thanks all for your comments.

  • Really nice watercolour, smashing sky. Lovely treatment and technique of your foreground.

  • Another lovely painting :) . I really like the greens and patch of sunlight in the sky.

  • Wonderful treatment of the foreground grasses and different textures. One query though. Usually the prevailing winds are off the sea so trees tend to lean away from them. This one leans towards the sea. It makes the picture better by leaning in but is it right? Of course there could be sea round to the left side too if it's a headland..

  • Diana: this tree is part of a hawthorn clump and basically doesn't know which way to turn - the sea curves around this part of the coast. I did think of moving it to the right, where I could have indicated directional growth into the picture, but felt that would unbalance it too much. That's my story, and I shall adhere to it closely. Your powers of observation are good, though, because this bit of cliff is west-facing so the dominant winds would come from that direction. Thanks to Jeanette, Karleen and yourself for these further comments.

  • nice, not a WC fan as you know but this one has balls. Great control of the greens. Not sure about the necessity of the ship.
