Really like this style Diana and the colours add to the atmosphere.

Wow! Another spectacular painting! Those birds are really effective sitting as they do!

Very impressive Diana

Super ominous sky Diana.You're on form.

I love this, painted beautifully.

To me, this is magical Diana! Gorgeous.

Very very effective Diana. Love your style.

Another stunner Diana.

Thank you Carole. We have very few birds where I live in Hull because of my cat but here , in Cornwall I love watching and listening. Thank you again David. I think they look a bit like tadpoles but they make a heck of a noise before a storm Thank you George. My favourite palette. Thanks Jim. I’ve not painted for months and am doing a few with no pressure. Thank you Denise. The foreground really was just a mixed blend of darks. Fiona, you made my day. I’ve had a stressful few months and haven’t painted for a while. I’m going to have a few weeks of no pressure creativity. Thanks Romila. I love a stormy sky with the beautiful shadows and atmosphere Thank you very much for your interest Chris. Much appreciated. Thanks again Carole. I don’t remember completing two in a day for a long time.

So beautifully painted love the looseness .

Love the freedom this conveys Diana. And the blues are wonderful!!

Thank you Paul. I love these colours doing their own thing. Thank you Audrey. I enjoy mixing greys with French Ultimate, cobalt , indigo and earth colours

Lively with great movement in that sky, nicely painted.

Thanks Alan. I haven’t been painting for a while and am getting back with no pressure or expectations

Super, really like how you've painted this

Love that expanse of sky, Diana, contrasted with the darker foreground and silhouetted birds. Lovely blend of colours.

Thank you Heather. It’s difficult to paint silhouettes without them looking flat. Thank you Jenny. I really love those colours. I suppose I could call them my signature palette 😂

Great soft brushwork and crisp detail, lovely!

Really like your sky Diana and the contrast with the darks below.

Really like this Diana, great atmosphere.

I like this a lot, Diana!

Thanks again Thalia. I do like variation of line in watercolour. Thank you Christine. The birds were all twittering away before a storm. Thank you Katy. I thought he birds made a lovely crisp contrast. Many thanks Manoj. I’m really pleased that you like it

I just love this simplistic scene. Beautifully painted.

Thank you Ellen It’s a shame you can’t hear the manic twittering.

Thank you Val, it was just as a storm was brewing

Really like this image Diana
