I love it Rachel, its different, but you have caught real movement in the figures. well done ,Mum x

Really different and interesting. Love it.

Unusual style - like it, Rachel

A reall modern art gallery piece Rachel. Very professional. Nice work.

Thank you all for the great comments.. really encouraging x

Very different Rachel, good piece.

love the colours used

Nice concept!

A splash of red could work Rachel, but an excellent idea using these simplistic forms.

Very eye catching. Well done.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to comment. Alan.. I was so tempted to add a bit of red.. maybe on the next one:)

Very interesting work Rachel and very unusual.

I love this Rachel and all your other pieces. I enjoy doing these simple figures as the style reflects my personality well - I like to do quick pieces rather than take ages to get detail. Also, I like the straight onto the paper with the paint aspect rather than do a drawing. Yours are much better than mine but you’ve inspired me to put more up.

Thanks Michael.. I did do a faint sketch first. It is quite daunting sometimes to go straight in with the paint but we really should just go for it:)) It is different for me this painting, I’m normally more straight lines and edges but I found the flow of doing these so satisfying and I’m keen to do some more .. I’ve had such positive feedback.. thanks again.

Have done similar figures like this but use a lot of colour. Like this piece. It worth exploring more.

Really love this one RK brilliant imagination

Hang on Studio Wall

Watercolour figures. Wanted to create something simple, serene, easy on the eye with subtle colours. I was tempted to put a splash of colour in but resisted.
