"Thank you for you comments Silvana and Lori. I also live near the sea and thought it would be nice to learn so that I can paint our own beach, but it is mostly covered in mist these days and therefor I cannot see any distant land. …"
The people's choice winner (votes) was Michael Severin - Mike paints beautifully - I expect you've seen his stuff. His painting was of some trees - not the workshop photos (it must be in the photo gallery). The random draw winner was Anne. Yeah, that's the second time Richard's critiqued one of mine - but his comments apply generally to everyone's paintings in many respects. I can see you're busy on the VAA course - I'm doing the opposite for now - just trying to do a few paintings! Cheers. Jon
