OMG - those power lines!!! How did he do those? There's an old house near where I live that could easily have been his reference; I've taken many a photo of it but maybe I need to look more carefully at the power lines nearby. What a beautiful painting and thanks for posting it, Derek!

BTW, I've used gouache and you're right, it's tricky. But it can yield gorgeous, oil-like results, as here. Do you use it, Derek, and if so, what brand?

Annie I have never used Gouache......only casein.
Check out his site on the link I provided. Even better examples.

Oh, yeah, Derek, I already did check it out. Amazing work - it actually reminds me a great deal of your style.
