Nice.

Wonderful! Simply Wonderful! I feel as though I am standing there and can smell the air! Your work is always a delight - thanks for sharing it with all of us.

greetings provence...i hear you are having quite the heat wave...beats may of rain storms? your painting is as always a lovely discription of where you are right now...i can almost feel the heat rising from the field...you have a way of capturing a moment, bravo

You've done it again; this is so evocative. It almost feels as if I could step into that field. Thanks for another wonderful work.

What a delight to receive a snapshot of what summer should be like on a rainy morning here... Think I need a holiday somewhere sunny!

Oh, the gold! So sunny and warm, and just beautiful.

Julian,
Ah, you've captured the distant mountains so well, with such ease. Wonderful!

Please forgive me for asking a technical question, but I'm trying to paint the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina in the US, and I struggle with lightening and graying the mountains to make them recede, but not making them so bright they pop forward in space. Please, give me a hint or two to create this depth in a landscape!

Many thanks!!
