Winter Sunset


I like the touch of Gold here Carole. Lovely colours too.

Beautiful painting, Carole.

Speaking as a heavy-handed presser-oner, you have captured the light delicacy of the petals really well.

Brilliant, Carole! I like the haptic effect of the stamens.

Lovely colour Carole, the dark background really sets the flowers off.

Lovely Carole - those stamens are stand out.

Gorgeous Carole, the gutta works well and makes the stamens stand out.

Beautiful Carole, so delicate.

Astonishing effect, totally right...and the glorious reds in the background. A cracker!

What a stunner Carole. Such beautiful gradations of the blooms against that rich, glowing background is mesmerising.

Love the texture of the stamens, Carole, gorgeous work.

Yet more brilliance from you Carole.

Tremendous Carole, that touch of gold is fabulous.

Agree about the dark background, and the gold.

Beautiful, Carole, love the colours and touches of gold.

Love it Carole - so beautiful.

My goodness this is so delicate and yet really vibrant. It's fabulous.

Thank you Dermot, very kind.

Oh Carole, I haven't looked on the site much lately, only just really picking up after a long absence. This work of yours is as lovely as I remember it. Just beautiful!

Thank you so much Ruth you are too kind. I hope you are keeping well xx

Very beautiful Carole!

Your usual stunning work Carole. Am trying to catch up on the paintings I've missed seeing while offsite, but finding the recent ones is quite difficult with this new site. I think I need to check out each gallery independently?

Thank you Sandra, very kind of you to trawl back. X

I would hate to miss out on them!

Beautiful as always! We are ok daughters were away in Barbados one on a ship just had news someones got it !! But they have been home ten days now so fingers crossed! My daughters home was so worried out there ! Keep well and keep painting x

Bet you were very worried Linda, glad ok now xx

Very appealing in all the details. I love the light petals against the dark background and the background colours are so lovely, too! Very nice painting.

You are very kind Katarina thank you.

This is gorgeous and so lifelike. I love your style of painting.
