Claudia ~ I'm constantly amazed at how much you paint. Your encaustic medium is too much work for me!! Bravo! I really like the period costumes on your figures.
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Alex, Bonnie,Geri and Nealey, thank you all so much for your lovely comments!!!
C&C always welcome
I seem to have missed a lot of postings..don't know why., must have been a last minute rush of creativity???
Geri I meant the van Gogh comment as a compliment......maybe you don't rate him?
Very impressive paintings posted...like them all.

Sarha I knew you meant it as complement but I was being hard on myself.
C and C always welcomed
This is a gorgeous church I see as I drive down the hill where I live. It looks like a castle! I almost got this finished in August!!
WC on 6" x 9" cp #140 paper
This is a beautiful painting of the church, Nealey. And the vertical layout of the paper is particularly apt. Wow.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Jen C & C's always welcome
Nealey, lovely watercolour of the Church. You have some good highlights on the Church and I like the darker trees at its base. The perspective is nice in that you are looking over the trees in the foreground. This is a beautiful Church.
Bonnie C & C most welcome / appreciated
Alex, Jen and Bonnie ~ Thanks so much for the positive comments on the church. In real life it is a beautiful view ~ I wish I could capture it better. My granddaughter (aged 9) told me it looked like a storybook picture. That was good enough for me!!
Nealey well done. Nice use of color. I find green hard to work with and you have done very well.
Hello Geri ~ Thank you for the complimentary comment on the church. I appreciate the time you & everyone else here take to respond!
Nealey, very nice WC of the church. Like how it stands out !
Still can't let go of summer and my oldest son who started School this week in the USA. This one is an older acrylic (70 cm x 120 cm, on canvas) it is of my oldest and middle son in the northsea. Don't remember when I painted it since I never sign or date things. I know I should.
The horizon should be lower I think and maybe I could have put more depth in using different color tones in the back on the ocean. I thought it looks a little bit like the Photo with the father and daughter in the ocean.
Hi Claudia, you did a wonderful job portraying your sons in this painting - the shapes of their bodies and their posture and movement. Plus, I love the way you captured the splashes of water around your older son (whom you must already miss so much!). I'm not experienced at painting water, so I'll defer to others on that but I do like the way the color of the water changes to the color of sand near the shore.
Claudia ~ My, this ocean acrylic is nice! I thought it WAS from the challenge photo - had to go back & look. Your boy's figures are so natural looking & the splashing water is realistic. And yes, you should sign & date all your work.
