Rome painting done after reading Jean Haines new book!




This is very exiting, I know I still have a lot to learn from Jean Haines I have been studying her book, and I will publish a more in depth review on here once I have painted more under her guidance, as it were. I am having so much fun with this! I hope I can begin to get results that will reflect the feeling I get from seeing light effects and colours in nature.

WOW! Roy I am so thrilled! This is so exciting, there is so much that is brilliant, new and fresh in this piece. You have movement and life here ! Way to go and please paint many more, your own style is here evidently too which is even more wonderful. A Roy Simmons with a tiny touch of Jeans influence, I LOVE it!
