A lovely painting Tessa , glad you enjoyed doing it good reason to do some more and no excuse not too, but do take care of yourself.

Lovely oil painting Tessa ☺ nice you had fun too and Thank you yes I can't wait for Rome 😊

Lovely oil painting Tessa and go for it re Landscape Artist of the Year

Wonderful painting Tessa.

Many thanks Hilary and Russell.

Thanks so much David.
