Spring and Autumn are the two most amazing seasons and this is fabulous. I don't know why I missed your camping trip paintings, but they are gorgeous - love the old Citroen camper!

Captivating atmosphere...Makes me wish I were there. Love your paint handling!

Rob, in these last landscapes, is you in a state of grace
I like these dense and transparent atmospheres, for lacking them here with some exceptions.
And where there is a car, it is not necessary to say the mark and the model.

rob ijbema said...

you are welcome to pop over dean,
cheers!

rob ijbema said...

thank you vicente,
yes in these i'm not so interested in details,but the feel of the place weather or moment...

Vicente Herrero said...

Rob, I should tell me
To that yours cars are recognized immediately
You catch yours characteristics without detailing very much.
Not to know English is a problem

rob ijbema said...

i think i understood you right vincente
your english is better than my spanish!
