The watermill

The watermill

Absolutely beautiful, Mia! You have a real treasure trove. I really like the way you created the recession in the background and simplified the foreground to bring out the watermill and the tree. I am constantly envious of how much you convey through the use of black and white tones! Thank you too for your very kind comment on my work. No problem at all about not commenting on my recent paintings. I haven't been painting much anyway and like you, I am strugglng to keep up with the postings due to my current schedule.

Totally gorgeous , Mia. I'm like you, I cannot keep up with the postings, but glad I saw this.

Another stunning painting Mia, great composition and beautifully painted. Many thanks for your very nice comment on my painting. I have really enjoyed reading your blog. I am sure the exhibition will be a success

BEAUTIFUL WORK MIA--- Very fresh -love it

Beautiful, Mia, whenever you did it! Such an interesting old building and you've done it proud!

You have done a beautiful job of this Mia, I know what made you paint this, its a mill with lots of character,I love it.

Love the delicate work in this - an evocation of the past.

Thank you all so very much for taking the time to have a look and post a nice comment. I really appreciate!

A stunning painting of a beautiful subject Mia.

A lovely subject that you've painted beautifully. Good luck with coming exhibition.

I agree with everyone, an idyllic piece, and well drawn as ever

You really have mastered this pen thing, haven't you!! Super drawing, lovely composition and I really feel as if I am standing in front of this watermill as you have made it so real. Great work, Mia.

Many, many thanks for your lovely comments. I am really happy that you like my work!
