Beautiful work.

Leslie Sealey said...

Lorries, trucks...I love them! I think it's cool how you worked it into your landscapes without showing the road. That is different, and good!

hi Leslie,this scene reminds me of France when i used to hitch hike...a long time ago!
thanks

Pablo Díaz said...

Oh man, I love the two, but specially the one of the truck. What a good idea to include it in the composition.

Pablo,when i took a picture of the scene a lorry came by,i thought better wait with the photo a bit,than i thought hang on...that's a good idea!
good to see you back Pablo

And there I was thinking that you'd got the lorry to wait for you!
I really like the colours in the second one.

hi Keith!thanks,the second one was one of those paintings that painted itself,every value just slotted in...wish they could all be like that...

Michael Chesley Johnson, PSA, PSNM said...

rob ijbema said...

The lorries are a fun surprise when buildings are expected. This is a new way to suggest movement, humm I like this.

rob ijbema said...

thank you Diane,i thought the field,despite the beautiful flowers,looked a bit boring composition wise,so...

Jennifer McChristian said...

The lorries are happy and so am I!
Love how the truck in the distance is 'peeking' through the mass of flowers. You brilliantly captured the dewy atmosphere that evokes 'spring' in all it's budding glory.

rob ijbema said...

hey Jennifer! so nice to hear from you again...you make my paintings sound good...

Mary Sheehan Winn said...

a couple of corkers, methinks. Composition is great.
