Gidday Mate!... Wonderfully wet... hilly... and green! That's the Wales that I remember!


You can feel the water... still in the air after the rain... a lovely atmospheric feel!

Good Painting!
Warmest regards,
Bruce

Hey, Rob.

I love those little shimmering yellows among the feeling of wetness.

So glad you checked in yesterday. It's good to be working again and getting back in circulation.

A friend of mine just returned from Wales and said it feels magical. I felt that way visiting Scotland, but I've not been to Wales. Perhaps I need a return trip to the UK. Then again, the hills of my own Berks County are quite lovely too. Thanks for posting. nice work.
