Bayswater


A little lunch break 'quicky' done back in August. For those who know Perth, this is from Bayswater looking across the river to Ascot.

Love that cloud mass David! It is wonderful watching them roll in!
Good to see you are still doing your watercolours.

Don't know Perth but I wouldn't mind getting acquainted. The clouds really steal the show here and you present once again your edge-work abilities. This would be a perfect place to lay on the grass looking straight at the sky with a gentle breeze keeping the air at the right temp. No politics, no worries.

Cheers Sandy, the watercolours never get he chance to dry out don't worry about that. The oils always have played second fiddle with me. There are great advantages with oil but the act to painting with them is lame compared to wc.

William, your comments are always soul fodder, thanks! As for the air being the right temp...this time of the year (Spring) is perfect in Perth but the heat of Summer tests the comfort threshold.
The 'Windy City's' staring to stiffen up huh?

Jan, it's great to hear from you, thanks for coming over for a squiz.

It's a beaut Dake, and does look like it took about 5 minutes and as few strokes of the brush. And a record-breaking four words from Jan, heheh, can't beat that. :)

Yes Nick, having Jan remark on my blog is a rare and welcome privilege. I think he has a good hand and eye for quality (:

We should do 5x5 challenge, 5 strokes in 5 mins.
With your penchant for things oriental you would do well I suspect.

Hi David,
Rarely have I seen a watercolour as good as that one.
It's flawless. I particularly like its appearance with the white background of the enlarged view

Congratulations.

I have an artist friend in Perth that I am hoping to visit I will have to keep up with your showings so I can see your work in person when I'm there. I enjoy seeing your work on line.
