remember Rob painting with one foot nearly on the pavement and cars moving alongat a good clip, sometimes rather close to him - ah but he never flinched.

Hi Julian love the colour of the sky and the distant hills it is a lesson on Atmospheric Perspective , the town of Caromb also beautifully placed in the composition , and the greens are a study again. How you are able to realize such depth is amazing to me , a joy as always.
Thanks Craig

Great !

Hi Julian,
I started really loving your work.Is amazing how much vitality you give to your strokes. Must be the French clean air.
Great work that I enjoy every day for free! Life is good.

How the village in the distance has been succintly depicted is superb and the tiny dots of blue on and in front of the church are for me connotations of spirituality. A small dot of blue in the first shadow of the road echoes the former dots of blue. The second shadow on the road evokes the shape of a steeple, another reminiscence of spirituality. The leaves and the dark branches on the left like a jubilant crowd seem to sing "Hosanna" and with the vertical slanted shadow above the bend of the road lead our eyes towards the village: maybe the bells are ringing at this time of day...

I love the texture in this painting. As the road dips down and turns what is there is concealed. The same is true of the houses we see in the distance. Who live there, we wonder? How is each house distinct from its neighbour. It is a very mysterious painting for me.
