Wonderful colours and fantastic shapes in your beautiful landscape Michael.

Powerful work Michael another beauty and great painting

Beautiful atmospheric painting Michael, you seem to get better every day. This is one of your best mate.

That's kind of you Dennis.

Amazing warm watercolour, Michael, wonderful washes.

A repeat of similar post and this is the best. That loose style and matching colours is ideal Michael

Love the style Michael, great colour too.

Thanks for kind comments Carole and Derek.

Michael, this is brilliant. Like your last posting I think the overlay of washes really works.

Thanks for encouragement Fiona.

This has worked beautifully. Fabulous colours imaginatively used. Interesting application of the watercolours.

Such a great palette Michael

I'm grateful for your kind comments Michael.
