Walk along the Kalgan River

Upper Kalgan River

I really like this Ron, especially the softness of the foreground trees and the detail of the reeds/plants by the rocks. Great movement in the water

Beautiful water, I like the eye catching blue colour.

A lovely feeling of light throughout your painting Ron. I love the movement in the foreground water, and the deep stillness of the background water.

A lovely painting - I like the rocks and the fast flowing water.

Thank you all very much. We are our own worst critics, generally, and I’m starting to get a feel for my new surroundings.

This is lovely.

Hang on Studio Wall

Oil (WMO) on board, 24x13.5in. Another view of the Kalgan River, upstream. It took around 15 hours, some of which was correction of compositional errors. There are still a few that I will revisit, at a later date, but in the meantime they have been 'subdued' (by some glazing, in places). Please feel free to critique/comment.
