The Boathouse, Hawick, Northumberland


Nice work Carole great sky and I love the foreground real feeling of the rocks and flow of water, great colors, I don't think it needed the figure for me it pulls the eye away a little, but love it overall nice one.

Thank you Malcolm for your positive comments. I agree with you about the figure as I very nearly took it out but because fishing has recently been resumed, thought it might be a motif of a return to normality.

I can understand that Carole

You are a colourific Carole. very effective texture.

Lovely sense of light, with dynamic brushwork.

Very striking in your distinctive colours, Carole. (I like the figure, it adds life to the scene, though maybe could have been a little softer in tone?)

Thank you Malcolm, John, Seok and Jenny for your very helpful comments and support. I agree with you Jenny. I nearly didn’t add the figure but it is a bit in your face, so I may tone it down a bit. Very much appreciate your adevice.

Stunning use of colour. You are very talented.

really striking, I love the detail in the window. So much to delve into.

Beautiful colours on this Carole! Very dramatic

Love the rocks and the water and way sky colours are reflected in water.

Great contrasts and vivid use of colour - you have captured the atmosphere perfectly in this painting Carole.

Many thanks to Jaqueline, Alicia, Margaret, Romila and Shaun for your kind words. Always appreciated.

Beautiful sky Carole which really sets off the colours in the water coming up against the rocks.

Gosh these colours are amazing!

Another one with a wonderful sky Carole.

That's a big fish! Great work Carole, just spotted it on the top gallery...

Wow amazing Carole, the colours are gorgeous and looks like a beautiful place, hopefully you can visit soon.

Lovely work, beautiful sunset. I like the figure, it adds a bit more drama.

Very colourful. Perhaps the chroma is a bit too overpowering. Try using more neutrals to show off your colours. But I like the composition. it's near where I grew up!

There is a mood in this picture. Spiky bushes and the curve of the fishing rode and the fisherman...

Oil on board 16” x 14” I’m missing my favourite haunts as I’m shielding, so painted this from old sketches and reference photos. Hope we can visit our favourite places soon.
