Arthur the Changes you made were inspired and have helped lift the piece
significantly. I was a little worried befor that you had a Shepardesque Pyramid
compasition going on to much. Although I didn't have time to post.

But ,by removing the problem elements its
produced more depth and flow. Looking forward to this one being finished
but no pressure! I know how hard it is to keep up with Mr Derry and Mr Wootton.

Coming on a treat Arthur. The redshank walking away is brave and, personally, I think it works beautifully.

Wow -- I really like this, now that I see it coming together! And the Redshank really is a perfect counterpoint to those stoic little terns. Brilliant, can't wait to see it finished!

Really lovely painting Arthur! Glad you finished despite the Rugby - the Redshank is a great addition for a spot of colour and love the 'half' tern in the bottom right - a very brave composition.

I hope your proud of this one, Arthur, because if you're not, I'll rub out your signature and sign my name on it! Excellent in so many ways.

Yes I agree. That half bird gives the painting alot of depth making it more interesting

This is what I loved about painting this sort of scene when I lived in that sort of habitat. It's much easier to keep it clean than doing grass and leaves and stuff, as long as you know how you're progressing and when to finish, which clearly from this piece, you do.

Fantastic work Arthur

I love the ''blueness'' in the water, was tempted to say it has a wintery feel about it ...but we don't get Sandwiches in winter do we!!

Must have been one of those glorious wide open blue skies of ours!!

Another classic
