Great Spring paintings Rob. Wonderful colour in this daffodil one. Your work always makes me think I ought to get out there and have a go at some plein air stuff myself.

Frank Gardner said...

Very cool. I like how you simplified the scene Rob. Nice purples and greens with yellow.
It is good to see the photo of the location and how you interpreted it.

Jack Riddle said...

Beautiful work Rob. Love the brushwork, the brilliant touches of color. Your photos are lovely, too and your interpretations of them very poetic. I'll visit often and post a link if OK. Jack

Slim Johnson said...

Lovely complementary colors, Rob --- and those lambs from your last posting are simply terrific!!

rob ijbema said...

thanks Slim,always feel sorry for those lambs,why are they born so early,they have to cope with a lot of bad weather...

Frank A. said...

It's a beauty, Rob..( Let me know if you need snow for this.) :-)

Take care..

rob ijbema said...

hey Mister snowmaster!
funny you should say that,we had a sprinkling of the white stuff overnight...but gone in the morning.
snow and daffodils would make for an intersting picture

Elio said...

I hope you remember all these places when I come to the UK.

Wow what a location.

I love the harmony you selected for the background.

Hello Rob. I've just had a look here after your visit to my blog. I like your work, it has an intimate quality to it. I like the way you go for the things that interest you and not necessarily the picturesque views.
We haven't got any daffodils up here in the North of Scotland yet, but hopefully it won't be long.

rob ijbema said...

all depends on the season Elio
this scene would be boring without all that cad yellow...but yes come round and i'll show you Wales

rob ijbema said...

hang on Keith,it won't be long
sometimes i think my work is a bit to sweet,so it is nice to hear you say that...thanks
