This is gorgeous. Reminds me of Sargent in Morocco.

This has a nice abstract quality to it. The colors are or so nice, too.

Fantastic Julian! Such spot on colours in the shadows and painted with such fresh vitality! Thank you for sharing!

Like this - very enjoyable:))

It's always good to see vignettes like this form you.
Special POV. Well done.

Exquisite dusk light Julain! WEAR your HAT! Home is where the hat is. . . . Judythe

Hypnotizing small black embrasure that looks like an eye half-closed and inviting to a catnap. It seems to me that I am able to hear now, behind the chalky wall, the deep breathing of the sleepers peacefully "talking" with the whisperings of the ocean through the warmth of the sea air...

Heaven

You are on a MAJOR roll!!

Really beautiful! Strong handling of subtle color variations.

A masterpiece!

Dear Julian, this is you at your best!
The old walls with their shuttered windows, bathing in sunlight and mysterious shadows, a masterpiece. The colours are exquisite. The expanse of the shady lavender washed wall on the right leads the eye toward the sun baked fa´┐Żade in the near distance. The heat seem palpable and the mood exotic.

Can't quite say why, but you have really nailed Morocco with the recent set of paintings. Certainly no sign of 'burnt out'. Enjoy yourself - we are certainly enjoying the results.

Love it:) It all looks very exciting!

Julian,
I am new to your blog and so excited to be here. I saw one of your paintings by accident and now I'm hooked. Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy and learn from your work!

Painting the beautiful and lingering cool shadows in this scene must have helped soothe your sunburn. Talk about inspiration!

so beautiful....especially since we're still here suffering from snow blindness....sigh

Lovely colors and variety in shadows. The movement of the stucco in the light is a nice counterpoint to the calmer blocks of shadow.
