Nice movement from panel to panel. It's warm and lovely.

Thank you for your comments. I am posting the picture that inspired it. (Not a copy of the scene - just an evocation of it)

I need to have a walk around this place today prior doing any more painting, so that I may freshen up my thoughts and feelings. This is taken in an amazing short scenic walk. It is a nikau grove with rata and startled wood pigeons that fly out from the trees. It is surrounded and intwined with massive limestone rocks outcroppings, that were moulded by the sea aeons ago. Roots of trees cover the rocks.

This is the kind of scene that once you catch a glimpse, you can better see more with your eyes closed. Boy are you blessed to have such a place to walk. Beautiful.

yahoo!! you're back!! :clap: :clap: I adore Nikaus, I always feel so proud of them!! I have tried to snap heaps on my trip away, peeking out of the thick Northland/Coromandel bush....
lovely feel...my only critique is to me the lines of the middle palm's bulge are a little ugly..just a little..angle wrong or something..this is ONLY my opinion...
it perhaps has something to do with where the fronds appear to be centred...???
love the colour here..I cannot look at nikaus now without picturing your work..:) how about that?? :D
when and where's the exhibition?..all the very very best for it..I can't see why you wouldn't do extremely well..

:) Hi, have done a little more work on this and I feel it is working better now. It doesn't so much look like nikau as feel like nikaus :D
