Re: Stonehenge evening

I like it... The texture in your paint is appealing to me giving a bit of the illusion of early evening stars and the colour gradations in the evening sky travelling down to the stones themselves is quite effective. I would personally hang this in my own home!

Re: Stonehenge evening

Graphic appeal is evident, this simplified style seems a good fit for the modern art sensibilities that I find many attracted to. I would enjoy a bit more abstraction in the sky rather than the smoother gradation of similarly pulled rows of strokes, but that is merely my aesthetic tastes.

Re: Stonehenge evening

Thanks Delo, yes I agree about the sky, I guess I paint with start contrasts have worked that way for many years

Re: Stonehenge evening

Beautiful! I keep returning to gaze at this painting. I have been to Stonehenge many times when the public had access.
