I happened on your blog today as I was randomly skipping through blogspot. Nice colors and moods in your paintings. I'm a big fan of the Impressionists & Post-Impressionists and I see the influence here. Beautiful work.

Grace and Peace,
Bill

Hi Rob, your blog is fascinating!

You capture atmosphere beautifully. The colours really drew me to this one in particular.

I love seeing how you paint ourdoors. That easel looks very nifty. I don't think I've seen one like that with a palette at the front.

ps. I'd love to see your sketch of Angle beach.

hi lesley,
thanks for your very nice comments.
that easel was build by a friend in Holland,it works a treat and
is small and very light,ideal for those long plein air walking trips....

i got very excited,when i saw you choose the same view to paint on Angle beach,or so i thought...

here is a link to my version

don't know if it works like a link,if not just copy and paste in your adress bar...

love the portrait of your mum

Hehehe! That is incredibly similar! I can see why you thought they were the same place. I'm going to turn mine into a painting one of these days! Do you have any more paintings you made at the coast?

I've just been looking at your racing paintings on your website. The energy you manage to translate is fantastic! I admire the way you can paint such different subjects and pull both off.

I will keep checking back to see what you paint next!

yes i did one more...but i'm not showing this...it is too bad!
plein air doesn't always work out!

good luck with your painting...
