Lovely colours Richard, beautiful light in this

I like both your posts Richard.

Two lovely plein air sketches Richards I like your rich colours and the way you have captured the light. I don’t think you can better a good day out painting.

My favourite - the water and reflections particularly good

A beautiful painting Richard the reflections on the water are superb.

Beautiful work Richard.

Thanks all - agree with you, Barry, nothing beats en plein air painting. Also agree with Heather, this is the better of the two - it was a better view to start with!

Lovely watery effects, love those 'blocky' trees, too

Super work Richard! When you go out to paint with acrylics, what do you have in your kit? I have never tried it yet so interested to know.
