Nicely put Sharon. Keep up with this sort of subject, I am sure you will be rewarded.

Fine atmosphere here Sharon. The figures are a great addition - they really make a huge difference.

Great use of washes Sharon to good effect

Thanks Derek, Kim and Michael for the encouragement ; I am envious of all three of you who get this right every time, you make it look almost effortless whereas in fact it is very skillful.

I agree with the above comments, Sharon. This is a very atmospheric picture. Well done. Houden zo!

Thanks Mia - I will perservere ! De groeten aan de Kust - volgende week zit ik in de buurt van De Panne.

I rather like the misty, smokey atmosphere of this painting with the shadowy figures in the distance. It has something about it.

Hang on Studio Wall

Result of a workshop last weekend on urban scenes, atmosphere and how to avoid getting lost in detail. Lots of room for improvement, but will use this as a benchmark to go forward. One important lesson : loose does not mean sloppy, as in wonky perspective ! The bones have to be solid. Painted on Arches 300 gsm 40x45 cm
