Smashing job Michael! Lovely strong colours and knife work.

That's a cracker, Michael. Great sense of distance, and I admire the way you've created the woodland area with your palette knife. Just great.

Splendid dramatic painting.

Thanks Lewis and Stephen.

Glorious sunshine Michael! I agree with Lewis with regard to the sense of distance.....absolutely love it.

Fantastic brushstrokes Michael and I love that spire peeping out amongst the foliage. The composition is superb and would look great on any wall.

Wonderful painting Michael, beautiful scene and smashing light.

Like the marks and colours, Michael

Thanks Maureen and Gudrun.

I love this, Michael. The church spire in the distance and that beautiful sky, just fabulous.

Thanks for kind comments Ellen.

A really accomplished piece of work. The light and texture created In the painting and the brushstrokes are just beautiful. For me, It is just the right amount of suggestion in the loose style of application. I am no expert but I really love this painting.

Thank you for your kind encouragement Suzette.
