This is very good Michael,I love the colours, the warm pinks against the greens. The near hillside ( or fell ) particularly draws the eye because of its strength. It doesn't remind me of Joe Hush so I think you've made it your own.

Beautiful painting, Michael, lovely colours and beautiful scene.

Thanks for kind encouragement Marjorie and Cesare. Nice to think I've made it my own Marjorie. It would be rougher than Joe's style, which it is, and which exemplifies my rough and ready personality rather than being careful and detailed souls like you and Joe. I'm quick but I'm rough!

Lovely work Michael, the little cottage looks vulnerable, surrounded by the trees and hills.

Excellent work Michael. Good enough to hang.

Lovely painting Michael, the addition of the sheep sets it off.

Lovely Michael-i thought it was an oil.

Thank you Stephen, Andre, Margaret and Linda.

My goodness Michael, this is so good! You've created a lovely overall texture which adds that something extra...rugged...and the sheep are perfectly softened in to the foreground. It's a beauty Mick!

Thanks for your kind encouragement Fiona.

Lovely painting Michael love it
