This is a fairly recent painting done with the brush set to 'go where
ever you want' mode. A thread of narrative started to weave it's way into the picture as I went along - hope you like it!
Acrylic on board - aprox 900mm long

Thank you :) This painting just seemed to paint itself...I just started sketching with the brush and the scene evolved as I went.
It was great and memorable fun - glad you like it

Wow fantastic, reminds me of a place I like to visit on holiday in the UK. A very relaxing and dream like lanscape, I love the colours, depth and overall layout :)

It reminds me of those perfect quiet nights, with a cool breeze coming in from the ocean, the barest of breezes blowing through the grass. Tiny little bleats coming from the sheep as they settle in.

Lovely.

The flow of your landscape pieces never ceases to grasp at me. Your soft bowing curves and the brush strokes that carry them are wonderfully executed. Not to mention your choice of colors and atmospheres is never tiring or redundant. Just beautifully balanced and a nice treat for the eye to amble across at leisure.

I grew up in the mountains, and we used to visit my grandma in the countryside each summer. She had farm animals and they usually returned in the evening:)

Lovely; you've really captured a sense of calm at the end of the day. :aww: The lantern-guy coming up the road is a nice little detail, minuscule yet diminishing the potential loneliness of the picture. :D
