Looking west in the valley

This is looking west past our boundary and towards our son's property. I added a bit of colour as once more I was sick of black and white.
A cool day to start off with and then it has got hot and sticky and the flies are awful. I walked Jake out and wished I hadnt.
Busy day and tried to do a bit of painting, not a good idea. My turn to go into Victor and be attacked by the tourists, I wouldnt mind if they kept their eyes on the road when they were driving and took notice of the signs. Also half the things I needed were not on the shelves, oh well.

Oh, I think this is one of my favourites - lovely composition and the combination of black and yellow gives such a good feel of the dryness of the land.

This is so nice - I agree with Alsion - you really feel the dryness of the land.

It comes across as very peaceful. I like this. BTW, even more I like the red painting where you had coffee. I like the big bold colors. (Now I see why artists are always telling me to do more of that). Thanks for publishing this.

Lovely curved lines and good choice in a limited colour scheme. You are really getting better and better Penny!

This is really lovely. I also love the onions above. Difficult to post comments at the moment. When you talk about the flies it reminds me of someone I knew who was born in Australia. His parents went out in te fifties on those really cheap tickets (£10?) to encourage UK immigrants. However from the day they arrived his mother couldn't stand the flies, so they spent the next seven years working and saving up to go back to England. His mother said 'When you see those lovely photos of Australia, you can't see all the flies'

Penny, this is a delightful sketch. You are so clever with landscapes, especially the hills surrounding the Adelaide coastline. I love the colours and the free hand that you display. Such talent! We also picked some onions from our small vegetable garden on KI yesterday. Looking forward to them in salads over the next few days.
