I did this painting last week, it's the first triptych I have ever painted - unfortunately not based on reality, just the power of imagination ;)

And the power of imagination is wonderful. I like the blues. It has a very calming feel to it.

Is it finished?

I have a feeling this wasn't inspired by the view of the Solent from Southampton! :p
Very peaceful!

Hi everyone & thank you, I'm really glad you like it! :)

I think it's finished, the painting did have clouds at one point but after a bit of agonising I decided to leave them out...

LOL - sadly the Solent doesn't look quite like this (it was actually pouring wet just about the whole week when I did this so definitely wishful thinking!!)

I really like cobalt blue and because I had a big new tub of it I thought I'd try this idea out :)

I love this! I love the blue. I like how the three panels are quite similar, and yet quite different at the same time. I agree it's very serene and calming.

Hi Hazel... I love the blues in this one too... You have done and excellent job! I would love to have paintings like this in my livingroom.. Keep up the good work!!
