This is lovely and the patterning is really clever and very effective, love the colours!

I like this very much Julie. It is a bold and strong arrangement and the colours are beautiful.

Love the colours and the strong interlocking forms. Nice work Julie

Thank you all for your nice comments. I did enjoy painting this.

I can see ST's influence but you have added your own twist. Lovely strong colours which make for a clean and fresh painting.

I love these three pictures you have posted. Great compositions, textures and colours.

Now that I've seen your second "centre line" painting, I can say I love the concept though I probably couldn't remotely produce anything like this. I love the abstract quality of this piece and the interaction of the shapes.

This caught my eye immediately. Wonderful shapes and palette, very cleverly executed.

Lovely colours and design!

Lovely experiments Julie, this one works particularly well.

Beautifully put together Julie.

It's me again!! Now that I have seen THIS painting, I could have saved my comments about Shirley T. as you have said that you know her work! Please take my remarks as a complement to your work, which I think is brilliant. Lovely portfolio Julie.

When dry I washed the colour over, removing the masking fluid when the paint had dried.
