  • Cathy obviously you don’t know the saying “Sailing is like tearing up twenty dollar notes and throwing them into the wind!” and painting them for me is much the same, Hugs for the comment just the same Cathy.

    Ken what a lovely painting, I love the soft colours and the reflections.

  • Gloria there is nothing like the muted colours of a dawn down by the sea, mysterious and sensuously relaxing, thanks Gloria for your words.

    Wonderful work Ken. The water looks amazing and those reflections are fantastic.

  • Lynda coming from a true master such as yourself I take that as the highest praise indeed, Looking at your pieces I love the way you achieve the results you do when you have a water scene, Thanks Lynda, this is my first oils in donkeys years.

    Can’t wait to see the full size as this is brilliant, love the blurred reflections;)
    …Doesn’t look like you had any problems going back to oils….once you start with them it’s hard to use anything else, acrylic is great but I’ve found there’s just something about the flow and depth of colour in oils;)

  • Shanina you are on the mark Oils do it for me and I do like the adventure down the acrylic path as well, as for depth of colour, we know we’re in to deep! Thanks for you meanigful comment.
