Have never seen Wesson's but this is superb. Wonderful light.

Michael this is sensational! I know the oil and this is a fabulous rendition of it in watercolour. You’ve caught that beautiful light that Wesson was so good at.

Thank you very much Marjorie and Fiona. I'm chuffed it strikes a chord with you. Got half way through and almost aborted ... oh ye of little faith!

Terrific light on the chapel against the dark sky Michael, which makes this a striking painting.

Thanks Tessa. Pleased you like it.

Dennis - thank you! 😊

This is wonderful Michael, the colours and that sky and light are beautiful

Thank you Heather. Got a bit carried away with colour in this one!

I have always liked the rather dramatic oil painting of this scene by the late Edward Wesson. So with some trepidation I thought I'd have a go at it in watercolour. Looks like sunshine after a storm. Wasn't too displeased with the result - it was fun to paint - but wish my hand was a bit steadier these days!
