Another excellent painting, I really like the way you are using black it gives your paintings great contrast, and atmosphere

A very different set of colours from your usual, Louise, and very appealing. Is this a recent one, because if so it seems your style is broadening - or am I quite wrong there?

Thanks Kevin and Jane. Jane,it's fairly recent but the paint is definately dry on this one! My painting at the moment consists of giving our front door a coat of gloss paint :)

I like the feeling of recession in this painting, beautiful colours as always.

Shirley Trevena says that she can't produce a decent painting without using black. I think it takes a very special skill to use that colour as it can appear dead and flat. Not so here - you obviously have the gift, as the black comes over as a darker tone of the prussion blue (?) and turquoise you have used and it has real life in it. Paintings with strong tonal contrast are always exciting to view and make such an impact. Couple that with your design sense and a great composition and you have another excellent painting in this super series.

Ahh, thanks Lesley and Thea. I do use rather alot of black, sometimes to cover up mistakes but I do think it adds a more dramatic feel to a painting. I'm a fan of paynes grey or a mix of colour to make these very dark/black shades.

Beautiful painting, different but great colours, I love it!

Thanks Petra. A new tube of paint=a new colour scheme!

Another great painting with impact! Thanks for the kind comments about my latest.

Again a beautiful "little" gem for your beautiful gallery, Louise. I especially like the colours and the use of black. It makes the whole painting very strong!

Thanks Mia and Stephen

Louise, your paintings are always very striking and really grab the viewers attention, and this is no exception. Wonderful contrast of colours.

Another lovely colour scheme. Love the water meadows.

Many thanks Fiona and Carole.

I like the repetition of the rolling hills in the background and the middle ground, Louise. It moves the eye around superbly. And I like the strong, almost monochromatic colors here. It's lovely.
