It is lovely Rob! As much as I like the morning light, the evening light I love the most.

thank you Susan!
i think as a painter it's best not to have preference for any light,any light has to be conquered!
eh,allright than,i like the evening light the most too...lol...

Conquering light?
are you nuts?
Embrace every little bit of sunlight you get, ....
and when you do it like you did here, .... that's HAPPINES!!

Good job Rob!

hi Rene,glad you like it,
bit tame after the thundering lorries but at least we had some light...

Hello Rob. I really like this one. You've captured the mood so well. I like the soft impressionistic feeling that comes through in your paintings .. ( something a camera can never capture)

Keep up the great work.
Cheers... Andrew
