Lovely Marjorie. The soft focus works a treat and that just watered look works very well.

Beautifully soft and impressionistic, Marjorie. Do you need more darks/shadows in that foliage? Just wondering. Love the reflections. Bri

Back with a bang. Splendid painting.

It’s funny as I am about to embark on a painting of my conservatory full of geraniums. I don’t want to be slavish in my attempt and want to try a looser style. Your oil painting is a perfect example of what I would aspire to achieve. Love the softness of the flowers and indeed the whole painting, with those subtle patches of light creeping in. Wonderful Marjorie.

A vision Marjorie. Lovely soft impression of heat and stillness.

Really lovely soft colours Marjorie 😀

Very impressionistic, and I like the wet look on the floor.

Thanks for all the lovely comments everyone - you're probably right Brian but I just wanted to pick up that paintbrush again!

This is lovely Marjorie, I hope you keep on painting now that you've had the urge to take it up again and look forward to seeing more of your work.

Glad to see you’ve been able start again Marjorie, this is such a lovely subject, and superbly painted. Impressive piece!

This is great, Marjorie. A very impressive, impressionistic painting. Love the misty atmosphere!

So vibrant and a joy to look at Marjorie.

The first step is the hardest as they say, but this is lovely, and I also like the softness of it Marjorie. Welcome back! X

This is impressive Marjorie. Super colour blending.

Karen, Alan,Mia, Val, Tessa, John....thank you all😊

This has such atmosphere. Looking at your painting,I can smell that humid, damp interior and feel that muggy heat. Described brilliantly

I love the misty expression.

Diana and Georgiana - thankyou!

Great job here...... I love your conservatory. I would stay out there all day!

Love the soft focus and gentle colours Marjorie.

Small oil on canvas. First painting for ages, hard to start again after you haven't had the "urge" , as many others find it too. Did enjoy!
