Adur river this morning


Lovely painting Shirley

Super picture Shirley. Yes, it's finished!!

I love the looseness of this. Don’t change it 🙂

Thank you, Faye, Terry and Eleanor. I agree, it’s finished. I just have to always wait a little while and see how I feel.

Excellent painting Shirley, agree its finished.

A smasher Shirley, like it a lot

Another good one Shirley.

Lovely work Shirley; like the palette. Go for the swans...

Lovely Shirley May.

Lovely, beautiful palette

Thank you so much. Jim, I remember you telling me once to get rid of a seagull!😍 I think I'll just leave this one as it is.

Really good Shirley!

I like it as it is Shirley. Love the rolling hillsides and dark trees. Any swans would be very small indeed and wouldn’t impact on this lovely river scene IMHO.

Thanks, Muchael and Sarah. Yes, Michael. If I had simplified the foreground, there might have been a chance for a swan 🤩

Love the dramatic sky, lovely painting Shirley.

Excellent painting, don’t go for the swans , just pretend they have flown away.

This is the three ‘E’s’ Shirley…..Energetic, Exciting and Excellent!

Carole, Paul, Gudrun, Fiona, thanks so much.

Hang on Studio Wall

I have worked on this after a Plein air expedition this morning with Lucy. Bit rainy and dark. It may be finished, I’m not quite sure. I would like to get the swans in. 😄
