Finally getting back to the small paintings. I enjoyed the clarity of light and shadow falling across these haystacks.

Hi Don really like these haylots, they seem perfect for the experience of artificially framing reality as their edges reflect the sides of the painting. Also like them for them nearly being like buildings, they are same shape and scale but not buildings. Love the way you have painted them so poetically, and in watercolour!

Hi Simon...yes, you've hit on exactly what interests me about them. With their simple forms I can explore an almost minimalist kind of abstraction, while remaining firmly within reality. And I do think of them like architecture. By the way, I've seen your architectural watercolors and they are phenomenal!

Thanks for your thoughtful comments.

Hi Don, thanks for the compliment on my day job, means a lot.

I've said it many, many times but it MUST be said again.

You are the master at painting browns, Don!

Unique subject matter and a good sense of depth using just a few colors!

Just great!

Most welcome, Simon.

I thought you might notice the blue/brown combo, Dean. :^)
