rob your paintings make me want to take up watercolours... they are fresh and full of light. maybe in another lifetime when i have mastered oils:) r.

rob ijbema said...

acrylic works a lot like oils rahina...and watercolors
anyway i prefer oils for outside and acrylics inside,acrylics go funny when cold and dry to quick when warm,oil can take it all!

Dag Rob

Wat doe je als Nederlander in Wales?
Ik schilder eigenlijk het hele jaar buiten, maar zoals je weet kan het hier ook wel een beetje regenen, maar ik wacht op de winter en heb dit jaar zelfs snowboots gekocht.
groeten Joost

Kim VanDerHoek said...

Excellent control of your focal point in this painting! Not only does the path lead me there but the figure punctuates where my eye should stop. Beautiful atmosphere too!

Leslie Sealey said...

The figure makes this painting sing! I think it's a great composition.
