As Tim has commented it is so atmospheric Diana. Interesting composition choice but it works!

Your paintings are getting more and more complicated but more and more enjoyable for people like me Diana.......

Superb again, Diana. I love working with a flattie too!

Looks great keep doing it Diana

An excellent piece Diana, great subject matter.

Thank you Timothy. I can’t take the credit for the image though. Thank you Margaret. I like the suggestion of books on shelves in the foreground Thank you Russell. Much appreciated Thank you Peter. This is an unusual subject for me but it’s for an art challenge. Thank you Thalia. I think I’m going to make the flattie a regular in my kit. Thanks Dennis.good To hear from you

Thank you Alan. I painted it for the monthly Art Tutor challenge

Lovely and clever work Diana. The painting has a bookshop smell. Painting in reverse with the background being the focus; really nice work.

Diana you are exceedingly good at creating atmosphere in your paintings, it wouldn’t be unrealistic to see dust motes catching the light.

Wow Diana what a complicated painting. The detail is so informative yet done in such an impressionistic style. You handle chiaroscuro so expertly and there is always a narrative to enjoy.

Thanks Jim. The challenge subject is lLibrary but this is near enough. Hello Fiona and thank you. The image was of a clean, modern place but ,your right, it has the look of old and dusty. Thank you Carole. What a very flattering comment.

This is lovely Diana - very atmospheric and beautifully painted.

Beautiful. How long before bookshops disappear from the market place. We used to love wandering around Charing Cross Road in the fifties! Superb atmosphere.

Thank you Margaret and Fred. There is a beautiful multi sensory pleasure in wandering around book shops, especially old, dusty ones.

Thank you Maureen. I really appreciate that
