The subject (or one of them) of the BBC's paint challenge last year. Nicely done Michael.

Lovely view well painted, Michael.

Excellent work Michael, you have used some great colours in this.

Thank you Cesare, Dennis, Margaret and John. I'm always amazed, no matter if I think something is poor, you others see it differently. If it hadn't been for that I think I would have forsaken painting ages ago. Thank you.

Thanks for your kindness Fiona.

Lovely balanced and interesting picture.

Thanks Linda and Shirley.

I really like the movement in this and the washes. Great stuff.
