  1. love these — particularly 1 and 3

  2. Love these too – esp the bridge and horizon and reflections in the water

    Holy moly
    These are great. I like the transition from the free first image, which is my favourite by the way, to the Tolkeinesque third picture.

    • Hello KA. No. 3 came first. Seems I need to spend a long time being exact before I can spend 20min being relaxed! I’ve lost my mojo. Any exhibitions you can recommend to get it back??

      • kestrelart said

        How interesting.
        I assumed it was other way round. The first was definitely the best and most interesting.
        Writing this and discussing with my adult son which of all chocolate biscuits are the best (post red wine discussion). Do you have an opinion?
        I agree about exhibitions. I’ll look.

        • Are Bourbons a chocolate biscuit or a chocolate flavoured biscuit? If Bourbons not allowed, dark chocolate digestives definitely.

          • kestrelart said

            I probably shouldn’t crowd your comments section with chocolate biscuit discussion. It just happened to come up as I was writing. But we both favour dark chocolate digestives (and hobnobs) but will eat bourbons while hating ourselves for doing so.
            Back to your painting … it’s the introduction of disorder which brings the final version alive. And your colour sense – those purples set against green and yellow, and the slash of blue.

            • I have always found hob nobs over rated and problematic to dunk – unforgivable in a biscuit. I think you’re right about the picture. Used a palette knife too which I liked

              • kestrelart said

                Hard edged tool on a picture always creates interest.
                Fair point – trick is to dunk the hobnob fast and bite immediately I think. But dunking chocolate hobnobs …. problematic in tea I think.

                • They remind me of stuck together rabbit food and are too sweet. I’ve just realised I am vehemently anti-hobnob

                  • kestrelart said

                    wow. I’ll never eat one and feel the same again. you are right I realise. I can taste that sweetness and feel the texture now from memory. I am being suckered with sweetness, like eating McD burgers with sugared relish and buns. a good dark digestive is not so sweet and has a hint of salt. But bourbons I can eat one after another but i somehow feel bad for doing so after.
                    Sorry – crowding your comments with biscuit discussion but I had to reply having induced such strength of feeling.

    I had to return to say that the first piece is one of my all time favourites of yours.

    Thoughts on exhibitions for inspiration: – I’ve never been but this year especially looks fun and perhaps inspiring. – open to next weekend. I just read interesting review.

  6. Very cool texture and I am blown away by how you’re simplifing the banks into neat shapes!

    I love the variety of renderings of this landscape and the textures captured.
