Comments

Nicely done Barry, you have certainly caught that Wesson feel here.

Yes you have captured that contrasting tones in a simple scene Barry, like it.

Thank you Stephen and Carole glad you like it.

Lovely spontaneity and atmosphere in this piece, Barry.

Yes Barry superb painting it looks very much like the master painted this himself.

I love it! Very expertly painted Barry.

Thank you Michael, but the credit goes to the master who has done all the hard work.
