Wonderful, tranquil painting of a very special place. The translucency in the foreground water graduating to deeper blues then fading into the horizon is bewitching Brian.

Very nicely painted brian

Thank you very much, Carole and Heather, for the kind comments. The colour of the shallow water was a real tempter for me, Carole. I looked at a number of images but this one really stood out. I was tickled pink to read "bewitching". Much appreciated. Bri

Beautiful painting, Bri - you've really done justice to Durdle Door. All aspects of this painting are very well done, including the grass in the foreground...

Thank you very much, Jan, for the highly encouraging comments. Appreciated. The grass was the very last thing I painted so I'm pleased you liked that aspect of this work. I'm delighted you feel I've done the DD justice. Bri

Thank you very much, once again, Margaret, for the kind comments. Always appreciated. Bri
