Barni and wife


I really like this Paul, soft and delicate. You have their expressions just right

You have captured these so well Paul, lovely.

I think the results are lovely Paul, super colour palette too

I think you did the right thing. It’s lovely just as it is.

It would have been so easy to add more colour but I think you made the right choice, so delicately painted. Lovely washes!!

Many thank Hillary,Denise, Heather and Christine for your kind comments.

Thank you Linda we must have been writing at the same time , I am pleased that I did not do anymore to it . I don’t normally paint owls quit so loose but the result is very pleasing really due to a friend who I bounce ideas of and who’s opinion I value . It’s good to have someone to get feedback from and share ideas with .

Very good Paul, like the LH dark background and colours. Agree, best left as it is !

What a great pose they are in Paul, well captured.
