Technique is fabulous Rob. You create an immense amount of detail with your brushwork. Lovely piece.

Superb work Rob. This is a wonderful demonstration of aerial perspective and limited palette.

There are many memories I transmit, seeing these works in Barcelona, ​​the view showing the saw from the terrace of the parents of my husband and I have walked far and Vincent painted the area. In case you had not noticed or had not said, I am the wife of Vicente Herrero.
You have done an excellent job Rob.
a hug

I join the chorus of praises.
Beautiful view from Montjuic! And your way of painting is truly complete. How Rahina says, not only cars and motorcycles, but also landscapes ...
