Beautifully nuanced shadows revealing and obscuring the structure of the façade.
The middle panel is excellent, allowing the viewer to supply some of the implied surfaces.


the paintings are absolutely lovely. wow. and what is this about nutmegging Jesus? I'm trying with all my might to understand what that might mean :) ...


Lovely paintings of the windows and
shutters, I can almost feel the suns rays warming the walls.
DO you do paintings of door ways, I love the doors in Italy some elaborate some old and weathered and barely hanging on by a thread, some with carvings, my favorites are doors within doors. Not to mention the door knobs.


Wow, you are good. I might just take an art class from you.


I hope this means you are going to be posting more watercolours! Beautiful, I love your use of darks, I think it's impossible to catch the light here without them.

I seriously thought those were photographs until you said they were watercolors.... my jaw dropped. Amazing. How wonderful to have a talent like yours!

Nutmegged Jesus.... Can't imagine that it's been done before.

Ice Tea For Me

Beautiful work, love the shading. I agree with them all, you haven't lost your touch.



Yes Bleeding Espresso is right..doesn;t look like you have lost your touch..I love the last one..:-)


Those were worth waiting for! I love the one on the left especially, but actually they look good as a triptych. Thanks for keeping your promise. (Fascinating observation on the colours.)

Now *that's* what I call a teaser....

Doesn't seem you've lost even a stroke on the painting...love those colors :)
