Last of the afternoon sunlight

Really lovely Michael!

You can labour over a painting for days and still not get it right - whereas a quick study like this one can capture all you need to say. And it did.

Walked near there last week and you've captured the colours we saw brilliantly

Works very well Michael lovely direct watercolour and i find sometimes these quickies have something special that more finished works at times lack

Wonderful work and beautiful sky, Michael.

Linda, Robert, Derek, Dermot & Cesare - thank you! Pleased you like it. As Robert said, quick ones can often yield pleasant surprises.

Not forgetting you Dennis! Thank you.

Great light and a lovely loose effect!

Thanks Rob - sometimes something simple works .....the more I fiddle the worse the result.
