Dramatic and full of atmosphere. Beautifully painted.

Beautiful painting Michael don't think I will have a paddle

Wonderful full of movement

Love the looseness of this Michael, the colours are so effective, the energy you have captured in that sea is fantastic, a really great painting.

Those blues and is it burnt sienna - well they bring it together and make it for me

Full of energy and atmosphere Michael, you've captured the froth of the surf beautifully.

Thank you all very much. Michael - the cliffs....I think I "threw the kitchen sink" at these - from memory raw sienna, burnt sienna, burnt umber, a smidgeon of cadmium red, cobalt blue, ultramarine, cerulean blue and a green that I can't tell you because the label has rubbed off the tube!

Beautiful colours, great sea, Michael

Pleased you like it Jennifer
