Sandra,

Nice treatment of this day. Most artists tackle sunny days only. Good job of translating this sea coast with pastel! The directional lines go with the weather rather than against it.

The main figure breaks the horizon and the buildings on the right compliment it wonderfully. Very nice!

You've shown that not everything has to be literal, but suggestive and every stoke is part of the piece.

WOW!!
You've done a great job of capturing the mood here! I used to live in the Northwest and this took me right to the dark, grey coastline in Oregon. Love it!!

Sandra... I'm pretty new around here... I love the painting you posted and I just took a look at your web site and I was really impressed. If you look at my pastels, I think you'll see why... I've been visiting southern England for years and doing pastels of street scenes mainly. I just love your work... you have a very well developed and sophisticated style. You have done some very successful paintings of scenes that I have looked at myself and but couldn't "find it" right there in front of me (Chelsea Embankment for instance). The next time I come for a visit, I'll be sure to check if you are having any exhibits. My only complaint about your website is that the pictures are so small... I'd love to see the real thing.

LOL Diane. If I waited for sunny days I'd probably never do any painting! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Thank you for you insightful analysis.

Hi RickLee
Thanks for you comments. I checked your website - your work is wonderful. Loved your use of strong colours. I can see we are drawn to similar subject matter.

LOL - my only complaint is that you have so many big pictures on one page - it takes ages to load. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif Have you thought about making thumbnails that would load quick and the viewer can click through to a larger image?

Let me know when you're next coming to England in case I have an exhibition.

best wishes http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Rick,

I really enjoyed your website and your art. I was awed by your work and the article I read on you in the Pastel Journal. It's nice to see you here at wetcanvas.
