Here are a couple of small (8x8in) acrylics on canvas board - painted in the gallery over the weekend. The first one is of St Andrews Harbour and the second is a quiet corner of Anstruther Harbour. All C&Cs very welcome.

Thanks Michelle - like that adjective "sunshiny" - it fits!

I like 'em both. Nice and loose but the drawing is dead on.

That's some knobby canvas you got there.

Beautiful! I like them both. In the first painting, you might want to consider varying the colours of the hill a bit, perhaps by darkening the it at the top, as it would add more depth and dimension. I love everything else about it; just amazing. :clap:

I really like your colourful shadows, particularly the foreground one in the painting of St Andrews. And the cathedral is awesome!

Thank-you for sharing your lovely work.

Feels like a warm summer day just looking at them! The buildings on the second one came out splendidly!
