Landscape Paintings I LIke.

This is another set of paintings I like amongst a great mass of others I've downloaded.  Some of the styles I wouldn't necessarily want to adopt, or indeed be capable of, but all display, in my humble opinion, great artistic merit.


The great Alvaro Castagnet, a very popular workshop artist. This is Pin MIll in Norfolk, a famous painting location for many artists over the decades.


Genevieve Buchanan an enthusiastic artist, and lovely lady, who I met on a number of Charles Reid workshops.


Chen Hong, one of the large number of excellent Chinese watercolour artists.


Christiane Bonicell - see Facebook.


Helga Berger - prominent on Facebook.


He Jiangu - another from China.



Ian Potts - I know nothing more about this artist, certainly strikingly different.


David Taylor the brilliant Australian Watercolour artist.


Millind Mullick - a superb and prolific artist, also on Facebook


Oleg Kozak - a distinctive style, prominent on Facebook


Michal Jasiewicz - a Polish(?) artist


Orhan Gurel from Turkey - one of the best amongst a vibrant group of Turkish watercolour artists.



Ping Long - another from China or is it Taiwan.


Sterling Edwards - an American artist

The general theme here - not in every instance - leans towards impressionistic loose paintings and I make no apology for this. This is what I like but I can appreciate more detailed paintings. More to come.
