Sunset over the marsh


Love those splashes of golden grasses in the foreground

Agree with Heather - those grasses are superb against the sky!

Thank you Heather and David. I got a bit carried away with colour!

This stands out on the gallery page Michael, it lights it up! Love the sky, understated but lots of impact and the highlights on the grasses are a brilliant touch.

.A comment like that Fiona is just what a chap needs to get out of 'painters' block'. Thank you!

Lovely water colour pastel painting and grass

Love the simplicity of this lovely, uncluttered, landscape in such golden colours Michael. It happens to us all. I find it helps to change the medium I usually work in.

It is excellent, pleased that you dared to post it Michael, you have done a superb job of it.

Well done Michael you have achieved a good piece of work here love your foreground especially.

Thank you Faye - all watercolour but based on a pastel demo. Carole - pleased you like it. Frustrating isn’t it when painting becomes ‘difficult’. It helped with this one that I slapped it on fast and loose and didn’t think too much! Paul & Chris - thanks for the ‘thumbs up’. Perhaps I’m going to get on a roll again 🙏

Love the sky, that blue and yellow work well together. Nice one Michael.

Agree with everyone, Michael - beautiful!

Many thanks Dympna and Anne. The setting sun has been conspicuous by its absence recently so it was quite nice to paint one!

Very beautiful I love the foreground grasses catching the sun Michael.

Carole & Maureen - thank you both very much.

A 15x11in. watercolour based on a pastel demonstration by Steve Hall. Have had a few weeks of 'painters block' and this is the first post I have dared make for some time!
