Bolton Priory, Wharfedale


Well I liked this as soon as I saw it on the forum, don't give up on the landscapes, you have lovely distance in those hills and I love the light coming through the priory.

The overall palette has worked well Emma, the amendments have improved the composition greatly, nice work!

A lovely painting Emma .

I think it’s a good watercolour painting, don’t give up on landscape as you have shown a lot off talent in this on. I do landscape and a I am content with one in five, the rest are ok but there is something about them that is not quite right for me.

I think this is good as was the sketch I saw, keep on doing them I shall look forward to more.

Thank you all for the encouragement.
