View from the Woods A Study

This has turned out beautifully and I really like all those greens, super painting Bob.

Very well painted Bob ☺️

A very accomplished painting Bob, an exhibition piece if I ever saw one!

Very good Bob, I can see the influence of Richard Thorn, who’s work I also admire.

A really nice composition and painting Bob, and I especially like those dashes of pink on the left, plus the light through the trees.

Superb work and beautifully painted Bob.

Lots of lovely greens in your painting.

Nicely done indeed.

Absolutely beautiful. I love everything about this!

I love everything about this! It's beautiful

Thank you everyone for your comments. I'm grateful for your encouragement. Bob

Great work! Love your greens.

Lovely colours you have captured the scene really well.
