Study of a Lane in spring after an original by Richard Thorn (Watercolour on Two Rivers 200lb Not approx 14" x 10")

Lane 4

This is a lovely study - really nicely painted. I am glad you got on with the paper well.

Beautiful tribute to Thorn, lovely work, Bob, your darks are especially effective.

A beautiful study- I especially love the shadows across the road.

Well, the experiment has worked brilliantly Bob

This is so good Bob, lovely feeling of light.
