Exquisite!!! Looks like you carried over the attempt not to blend here -- it is WORKING! GORgeous.

Hi Camille, thanks for visiting. Yes, I did try less blending here but I think I might not always feel like doing that with these paintings of Stalybridge. We'll see!

Hi Sheila,

I love this. I like how these little surprise pops of colour appear here and there. I also just love how you paint.

They are such evocative things to talk about Rob, I think that's why they draw me to paint them.

Hi Sheila,

There didn't seem to be a place to comment on the painting above, so
I'll just say right here that I love it. I studied it in awe. You are soooo good.

This one has echoes of Cezanne in the paint handling and design. Very fine.

Hi Don. I had to go down to London for the day recently and called in to the Courtald Institute where they have a few Cezanne still lifes and portraits. What a master he was. Those paintings stood out in that room. Although I didn't set out to emulate Cezanne here, if mine only has the faintest of echoes of that for you I am well pleased.
