A January Market Day at Villereal

A very competent painting Michael, excellent composition and not spoiled by masses of unnecessary detail!

Beautifully painted with bags of atmosphere. Love the activity without it being over the top Michael.

You’ve caught a lovely light in this Michael, I especially like the halos of light around the people and other objects. An uncluttered and pleasant scene.

Alan Carole & Fiona - thanks very much. Took longer to paint than many I do even though there's not much detail.

Thank you Dennis. Enjoyed painting it and even more being there last January.
