The Alchemist


Very good Robert.

I do like this composition - interesting proportions engage the brain but I like it more for its ability to transport me to a time and place that doesn’t exist.

Excellent painting , tell many stories I particularly like the colours you have used adds that fantasy world look.

Great to see some fantasy on POL. I particularly like the way you've handled the demon, and the whole tone of the painting suggests candle-light...which is what you'd expect.

Fabulous - love paintings that tell stories and that you have to engage with and the more you look the more you see

Oooo, the imagination can riot throughout this painting Robert. I’ve already made up the story, of dark deeds and magic! Love it!

Ooh that's magic very different I like it.

Love the narrative and the clever way you have used darks and lights Robert.

Thank you all for your kind comments, sorry for the late responce but I have only just had chance to fire up the pc (and my phone has has a problem, sob! hoping father Christmas will bring me a new one) .. happy and merry Christmas to you all.

Robert Ward

Been painting and drawing in my spare time for fifty years give or take a year or two here and there and I did think retirement would give me more time to paint, how wrong can you be.
