Henry... I love the sky and I love the water... I think I don't love them together... You're still experimenting with your flat brush, methinks, and you chiselled in the blue and green wavelets??

I took a second look and now I'm not sure... The peachy, rosy colour in the water is fantastic... I suspect that the darker blue lines beneath the castle are what's distracting me... The green lines are softer and work with the smooth surface of the water...

Superb balance. Both of composition and color.

A very hard thing to do.

I adore this painting.

Well done.

Henry, that sky is much more Scottish and the loch is so very still! Like it!

Beautiful, Henry... The water and the reflections are great...


NORMAL SKY???? Scotland? Surely didn't look like that when we were there... but I LOVE IT
