Spring flood

Happy Easter to you too Michael. Love your painting. I often think that painting from the imagination has a freshness similar to en plein air impressions. This is delightful.

Thank you Ruth. Must say plein air work holds little appeal just now in this wet & very windy spell. Roll on summer!

Love the fall of water Michael, I can almost hear the roar of it!

Happy Easter to you too Michael. Love the water very well done.

Thank you Fiona & Carole. The rushing water doesn't entirely please me but if I practise enough I may eventually get it right!

The water portrays it's power through the apprehension of the walkers whcih complete a smashing subject.

Thank you Michael...Hope you had a good easter too. Lovely painting and love the rendering of the white water.
