Holy cow, WP! Most striking are your colours. Beautiful, beautiful colours. Can you post a bigger picture? This one deserves a closer look. I can predict good things in your artistic future. :D

Absoultely wonderful!

Beautiful,
ight and cheery colours...love the boat...what a focal point.

I love pink and blue especially when used in clouds. So warm and vivid.

Being a Christian nature overawes me at times...

Brilliant.

Actually looks like a watercolour than an oil...excellent.

The pleasure is all mine Sir.

The little flowers up the corner...lovely touch. An Irish focal point (no harm intended to the Irish)

I just noticed the Luck Dragon in pink in the middle section. Think he was in Never Ending Story?????

Brilliant...the fantasy grows and my smile is like the one on the yellow face.

I have created BLACK works and LIGHT works and I believe that artists we have to explore both...only my black works can make me ill at times and great
ight positive works with little subtle? innuendoes are fascinating.

You could write a book about this...maybe a child's story...Narnia, the Hobbit.

Thanks for the larger pic. The sky is excellent and so is the hillside. The water under the boat looks like a meadow, which may not have been your intention, but it's great, it gives the painting a surreal feel.
What are oil sticks and how do you work with them?

Not my kind of medium but excellent work love the progress of the sky and the blending then the little details. :D Fantastic work for first time using will keep an eye out for you as after 6 months of using oil pastels will be even better. Thank you for showing it

This is phenomenal for a first effort. And I always love the vivid colors you use. The oil pastels seem to suit you fine.

I had no idea until i read the comments that it was oil pastels. Fair play weirdpuckett, fair play..You have definitely got an eye for complimenting colours and a great use of vivid colours too has really set this picture alive..Keep on going!!
