with the wind and all those lines
with the knives and the woods...

Well it's just lovely. Thank you for putting Blackwood, Caerphilly,South Wales on the map. There is much beauty in the South Wales valleys that is often overlooked. You have captured it beautifully. :-)

Bruce Sherman said...

Hi Rob!.. I'll say it ... just once! A marvellous overlapping of the natural and man-made worlds. Your strong use of warm colour and your simplification of the bridge elements... make it a gem!

Well done Rob!

Good Painting Mate!
Warmest regards,
Bruce
