Not a breath of wind


Lovely use of the medium, strong, clean washes and a good composition.

Spot on Michael, great sky and reflections and a nice selection of greens the right hand foreground bush pushes everything back so well, nice one.

This is really lovely and you have perfectly captured the title

Really like this.

A really good example of watercolour painting. This is excellent Michael the colours in the reflections are very nicely done.

Thank you everyone. Glad you like this simple scene. We could do with a few days like this - summer seems to have gone rather pear-shaped at the moment.

A simple, but very effective composition.

Ah.....blissful scene Michael. You’ve certainly captured the atmosphere of a calm and still day, not a ripple on the water. A lovely spot for fishing! After reading your remarks ref your weather, I can, at this point, stick out my tongue and wallow in the fact that we’ve had glorious sunny days here in Galloway 😋

Thank you David & Fiona. Lucky you Fiona - here it has been dreary dank and that other ‘d’ word you use. I have a new water butt and it is overflowing!

Lovely painting indeed Michael, just love the colours, and yes we could do with more day's like this, this is the first we have ad our C/H on at this time of year, maybe it's the price we have to pay living in the North East.

Thank you James & Margaret. Not surprised you have had C/H on James.

Hang on Studio Wall

A still summer's day. Tried to keep this fairly simple and hopefully not fiddle too much. Looking back through my gallery, I seem to be predominantly a 'blues' man so I have tried to introduce a few more colours in this one. 15x11 in. on Arches 300lb NOT paper.
