July Challenge A Summer Sky

Hope you have a speedy recovery, Barry, and I hope you don't feel too uncomfortable for much longer. Lovely sky, soft and gentle, with some beautifully subtle yellows, reds and blues. The land complements the sky perfectly. Delightful! Bri

Hope you’re soon fully recovered Barry. This is a lovely gentle painting. However frustrating, I think short bursts for painting sometimes helps, or at least gives you a different aspect on your work.

A very beautiful and dramatic sky, Barry. Wish you a quick recovery!

Do feel for you Barry. Hope you’re more comfortable soon. Love those delicate colours and the lovely style you have adopted to paint this. Super painting.

Beautiful colours, get well soon.
