Reflections on the River Mole

Yes Micheal you've caught this one perfect fresh as a daisy, I like it vert much

Thanks Dennis - wasn't sure about this one but it's growing on me!

Lovely place. I like the tonal contrast on the building and the reflections in the water. Fresh, unfussy and bright. Nice work.

Nice work Michael, good feeling of light and shade. The tree reflections work well too.

A lovely piece, the light is beautifully captured.

Superb reflections Michael and I like the bold colour treatment of the bank.

Really nice Michael - I agree with all of the above

Thank you all for your very kind comments. BTW, I am quite happy to receive critical replies on where I might have done better!

Thank you Gudrun. Spontaneity is so hard to achieve isn't it? It would be great to paint on impulse and achieve wonderful results. However, too much freedom of expression and I usually end up in a mess! I am continually trying to paint more freely but it is a long learning process.

Lovely and fresh.

A quiet spot on the River Mole, a tributary of the Thames, in Surrey not far from London. I rather liked the old barn on staddlestones on the far bank. Mike
