I don't have a favourite, I love them all. So much atmosphere in them that I feel like I'm there

All are gorgeous.
The clouds in the second and third ones are ... I can't think of a word. They're so lovely.

Not sure I would want to be in those woods looks like the wind followed you in and knocked things down! Nice job. I love the skies in the other two particularly the last one. I really like the colour harmony in sky and land in the last one.

Thanks Jen today the wind pushed me off the rocks but worked with a compromised composition(and a windbrake) still great to be out there

It's always a pleasure to see what inspires you when you're out in the world, Dan. These are all so nice but the clouds in the last one are just gorgeous!

Really gorgeous ..all of them..

Dan, you certainly seem to master the rules of composition and color harmony, and at the same time show your own strong and living style. Love them all - every of these paintings is a treasure. Nature is such an endless source of inspiration, isn't it?!

Very beautiful paintings ! The sky in the third ( 3 ième ) is fantastic. All your paintings are very realistic, with an " atmosphère ".
