On the Isle of Arran

On the Isle of Arran

Brooding sky, very solid looking ground - great stuff, with enough atmosphere to cover a planet.

Super tonal work Michael.

Lovely work Michael 😀

Has a great atmosphere - loosely painted.

Thank you Tony Tessa Linda & Maureen. Enjoyed painting this and the main problem was knowing when to stop and not fiddle!

I like it very much Michael.

Thank you Margaret & Sandra.

That's a super tonal work, Michael, certainly has the Wesson feel, but for me also the Seago look, although it's Arran, not Norfolk/Suffolk!!

Well Thalia, if just the slightest touch of Wesson or Seago rubs off on me I’ll take it - Arran Norfolk or anywhere! Thank you for your nice comment.

Yes I do like it! It has real atmosphere and I particularly love the sky. Well done

Thanks Chris - glad it appeals.

Hang on Studio Wall

Edward Wesson painted this scene in oils and it has always captured my imagination. So I thought I would have a go at painting it in watercolour. 15x11 in. on Arches 300lb. NOT. Hope you like it.
