Really nice work you've been doing lately! The "Hill Farm" painting has a beautiful sense of light...especially that warm glow in the sky against the cool hills. I also really like the abstract qualities of the previous post (fallen carriage).

Rob, I just clicked on each of these to see them in close up and I am amazed how freshly done they are, not laboured at all, the canvas showing through in many places, yet they are so rich in colour. Rene is right - they are very, very, very good paintings.

i'm trying to work quick

Rob, these two are really super, you can so feel the welsh countryside in winter, it looks like a Xmas card, and I love the way the little car is making friends with the tree in the one above. really good job!

I agree with everyone-- the light and shadow playing over the snow is breathtaking.
