Pen & Wash sketch


Love the movement in the water and your gentle palette Michael.

The soft warm colours attracted me too.

An appealing painting, Michael, with good movement in the river and an interesting sky.

I really like it Michael.

Fabulous painting

This is good, I like the soft colours.

Such a simple and wonderful colour palette and beautifully painted

Thank you all for those positive comments.
