Nice painting Robert, I know exactly how that windswept shrub feels. lovely bit of lighting in the sky.

Good painting Robert, like the little figure on the edge of the cliff

Like the sky Robert and the way you depict the denseness of the undergrowth.

A magnificent sky with lovely use of the medium. That looks like a figure in the distance at the cliff edge..... I hope it is as I think it adds to the scale of your scene, he seems to be staring out to sea at a vessel on the horizon. Super Hawthorn!

Robert, I am right there with the wind in my face....this is very expressive work.

Stunning sky Robert, I can feel the wind and salt spray from here!

I agree with all the above comments, Robert. Living on the coast too, I know everything about windblown trees or bushes. This is perfectly painted but it doesn't need cropping, you will loose part of the scene. I think you didn't photograph it in the right angle between painting and camera.

Thanks all - and as usual, Mia: you're right!

Full of movement and spontaneity. It's super, Robert!

Just discovered, like it a lot for the reasons given above, reminds me a bit of hiking on the Akaroa Peninsula (in my earlier days), same sort of windswept.

Back to the Isle of Wight, and one of those windblown Hawthorns which I've painted once or twice - or thrice - before. Quarter Imperial 300gsm/140lb Bockingford Rough.
