    Creatures at an exhibition (based on pictures at an exhibition 😀🤓)

    Outstanding ! You of course have nailed the expressions that viewers have at these events. The characters look like they have stepped out of the paintings on exhibit and are viewing the viewers with bemusement. There is a slightly disturbing element in this of something abnormal and being not...

    Paranoia will Destroya

    Great going Bongo ! I appreciate your inclusion of the different iterations of this scene, very interesting. I also mostly agree with Arty, I had a similar story conjured up about what was going on. The facial expression is terrific.

    Poplar Drive By Lake - HH series

    Abut the same time period as Afton Villa Orchard, same approach. Heavy handed. 16x20 in tempera,acrylic/cardboard I think poplars are a poor mans version of Italian Cypress; love them both.

    Dusting Of Snow In Sofia

    From a while ago when first learning pastels. Used mostly charcoal for the blacks because my black pastel crumbled and broke up too much. The scene, I think, was based on a google street view on the VirtualPaintout site. 18x24 in pastel,charcoal/hardboard. a little brighter IRL

    Batch Plant On A Sunday

    From several years ago. 18x24 in acrylic/plywood - should have braced it because it warped a lot and made it difficult to photograph. poor focus, better overall IRL.

    Last of Bruce

    I like the way the strokes in the trees contrast with the ones in the sky and the highlights in the snowy shadow. Nice one.

    Summer In The City

    Great one Bongo ! It epitomizes places like Oceanside CA for me and therefore I would keep it 'as is', but that's just me. PSA is right, forever and a day.

    Afton Villa Orchard

    SNO - Thank you. I'm glad you see a Tuscany look because that was sort of a last minute inspiration from the two tall foreground trees that made me add the distant ones beyond the orchard. WAYNE - Thanks, you're right, there are several in which I used that approach and to identify them I...

    Voice of Nature

    "The idea is to keep using one source but find new ways to add or subtract from it while looking for a better unity of expression." Great Wayne, that is exactly what I am trying to do using Duralar..I'm not sure if the viewers get it. "Not sure if people revisit old threads but seems silly...
