A Nice Lunch With Murial

Yes, you carry on with this. It's got great atmosphere.

Yes Alvaro is a favourite of mine and this is another excellent piece Barry well assimilated

Wonderful painting, Barry. Alvaro Castagnet is one of the greatest watercolourist and you are following in his footsteps very good.


Thanks everybody that's very encouraging.

This piece works very very well Barry

Very attractive style, interesting subject.
