This is beautiful - I love the layers of hills and mountains.

Very expressive brushstrokes - great job!

Nice painting. Very similar in feel to The Church except seasonal. I like these densely packed cityscapes with their roofs and walls creating a cubist space of angles and planes. I also enjoy the naturalistic use of color. No one color is clamoring for attention so you feel the impact of how you saw the scene.

Nice, broad strokes add a lot to the final outcome. And like Stephen said, the colours are not to strong, and let me focus more on the houses and mountains.

Please stop by my plein air painter blog, I gave you an award.

Galina Nikolova said...

Thanks Beverly, and Deborah and Steven! In these pieces I didn`t work in thick layers and the paintings were made "a la prima". I tried to make the feeling as expressive as mine impasto works.

Thanks Abhishek and Benjaminlois for joining all friends.

Mariano and Carolann and Gianlicio, I shall carry on following your blogs with interest as well, thanks a lot!

Well, Trevor, your opinion as you know, is very important for me.Thank you.

You seem to be moving away from Van Gogh towards Cezanne. I'm not sure you have found your own voice yet. Maybe time to think outside the box?

Galina Nikolova said...

Thanks Michael for visiting again, I hope that I shall continue enjoying your works too.

Thanks Ian for putting me in such good company. Experienced painter would feel the diferences between my way of painting and the way these great artists work.
If you live within your painting, it is never possible to compare others. That`s why I don`t feel such necessity as well.
