Wonderful movement through the painting. Delicious color...it has a sort of abstract feel to it that I love. Well done

Lovely! How do you get such a smooth look? Do you use layers or thick paint?

You have an amazing technique with the paint Henry - but it's the atmosphere of your works that move me - I love them!

The remoteness and serenity in this are super.

:thumbsup: I love your use of color. At first I thought this was airbrushed. You have created so much depth and movement

I really like how the colors are bold and the painting is sharp but also blended fantastically too.

Great job! :thumbsup:
