Departure Lounge (RSPB Saltholme)

Departure Lounge (RSPB Saltholme)

Like it Emma. It has the atmosphere of Saltholme with distant view of the Transporter. Nicely understated.

I like this Emma and not just because that's the Middlesbrough Tranny in the background lol, love the flock of birds and the ones perched on the bench.

A lovely calming painting Emma.

This is really lovely work Emma.

This is a great painting, subtle and sympathetic. Love the touch of humour in the title!

Thanks everyone (and bonus points to those who recognised the Transporter Bridge!)
