  • Well I think you have achieved a lovely balance, there is lots of 'looseness' and some fine touches of detail in the foreground which add good strong tonal values. I didn't see Alan's original challenge, but I think you must be very happy with this outcome.

  • Well I have looked long and hard and no way can I see any rusty bolts in there.....I think your painting is very well done. Fortunately I wasn't on line when the challenge was issued, or it would have been a whole rusty vehicle, never mind a single bolt! This has great atmosphere and depth.

  • I don't think you lost the looseness. Looseness is a very dificult thing to define - to me it is more the feeling which comes over from the painting that the painter has used broad sweeps of colour and painted in a bold and courageous way and allowed the paint to mix and merge and do it's own thing. I think you have certainly done that here, especially with the sky.

  • I like it. I also like the forground colours very fresh.

  • Lovely sky - and I like the way the clouds are obscuring some of the mountain tops. The dark shrubbery in the foreground gives a touch of drama. A great painting.

  • I love your melancholic touch and has as been said before you've got the right balance between looseness in the background and detail in the foreground. For some reason it makes me think of Heathcliffe and Wuthering Heights.

  • Works for me too. Like the implied misery ;).

  • The colours are spot on. Good combination of hard and soft edges.
