Hi All
Havn't been here for a while and as I have been ill for the last two months thought I would get my brushes out and have another go.

I was wondering if you could evaluate these acrylic paintings.

Many thanks.

Hi Nick, sorry to hear you have been poorly.
Such bright, sunny paintings you have created...were they comforting to paint?

Love the color in these! Especially the color & composition in the first one!!!
It's a winner!! :clap: Hope you're feeling much better!

I am glad to hear that you are on the mend. I really like both of these paintings. They both show a strong sense of composition and color while the 2nd has a great tension between the two flowers and the cloud. Really great stuff!

Thank you all for your replies and good wishes, I am slowly on the mend.
I am going to continue this style of painting for a little while, although I have one slightly different scene, that of my daughters kitchen in Italy. I will show you if all goes well.

These are bright and sunny Nick - as Nitsa said - certainly no sign of depression that illness can bring, so I hope they're a sign you're on the recovery road!
I like #2 particularly - breaks rules, but what the heck!
Really nice :D
#2 reminds me of American Gothic (think that's the title) - totally different, of course, but the comp brought that painting immediately to mind!
