Angel Hill Early Morning


It looks great Rachel.

Love all that thick impasto and brushwork

Well done Rachel in all respects!

Great impasto work and a lively street scene painted so vigorously Rachel.

Beautiful Rachel 😍

Very good Rachel, has a real feeling of depth.

Thank you all for such lovely comments :-)))

A good result Rachel! These aren’t easy, particularly plein air using the direct approach. It can all get a bit thick and sticky!

You’ve got guts Rachel and a wonderful attitude…’s terrific what you are doing. Love that thick paint…..mind you, it will take an age to dry! 😂

Thank you for such kind comments Diane, Martin and Sarah, yes! it was certainly interesting painting it Coral!

Love this loose style of painting- very effective Rachel.

I'm loving the energy and texture in your brushstrokes.

Super painterly style, Rachel.

Hang on Studio Wall

It’s a good exercise, as it really gets me way out of my comfort zone, but am really enjoying them. But must remember to take Cad Red next time for the traffic lights……
