Up towards Ditchling Beacon, looking south.


Lovely country scene!

Lovely view of the Downs Shirley. I like your greens. Well painted. If it is any consolation, it is dull and very cool here near Ross on Wye too.

Yes, dull and windy here, but always nice to get out in it!

You didn't happen to see our Summer out there, at all, did you? Still - you've caught the weather and untypically desaturated colour that comes with it.

Thanks Robert! I think I saw it fleetingly peep out from behind a cloud!

Lovely and a lovely part of the world, always good Shirley

Lovely strong tones make this scene Shirley, the trees act as a nice frame for the distant fields.

Thank you, Heather and Stephen.

Nicely done Shirley. A very good composition.

Beautifully painted Shirley, love the composition and shades in the trees

Like with your watercolours (with Rosie) you have a lovely distinctive style with oils.

Thanks so much, Chris, David and Gudrun. It's acrylics, Gudrun, but thank you very much for your comment.

Yes agree with all the other comments, this is lovely!

Your distinctive lively brush strokes show through on this one Shirley. It’s beautiful, love it!

Excellent, lively piece, Shirley. Very expressive and full of movement.

Plein air this morning with Lucy. Dull and windy. Bit more work just now.
