Hi there Mate!... And paint you did! A real beauty... lots of fine colour and a powerful... uplifting composition!

I can understand the meditational attraction of this setting... you have captured that element for certain!

Good Painting!
Warmest regards,
Bruce

Some lovely work on your pages. It has developed really well since I last visited. Are you working in both oil and acrylic these days - how do they compare?

Rosie Tremain said...

aah that's so beautiful Rob. I really like the sunlight falling on the top of the hill, and the blue shadows. (and also the finished version of the river painting - lovely)

gorgeous glow on that hill Rob. that light is very hopeful that spring is coming.

hey nice to see you again andrew
for me acrylics are easier to use
but they don't behave outside
they freeze dry out etc
so it is oils outside and acrylics inside,also oils look a bit better and have some sort of mystery...

rob ijbema said...

your turn next rosie ;P

rob ijbema said...

yes sally it felt so like spring,glad i went out...
it is all miserable again now
