Dusk on the Firth of Forth

Such a soft, gentle light in this, Val. Hope the fingers have recovered!

Super, soft feel which is set off by the crispness of the boat.....really like it Val.

Many thanks Jane and Fiona for taking the time to comment, much appreciated.

So full of atmosphere - nice one Val

I like this very much such a tranquil scene - like the light effect

Thank you Michael and Glennis. I enjoyed painting this one, apart from the sore fingers!

Lovely seascape Val, so tranquil and athmospheric

There's a great solitude in this Val. Beautifully done, well worth the suffering!

Oodles of atmosphere Val, love the light and your little boat is just perfect.

Very atmospheric Val, shame about the fingers though!!

Thank you Petra, Carole, Lesley and Denise I really appreciate your lovely comments. Fingers have recovered now I'm glad to say.

This is really lovely and atmospheric Val. A super piece!
