Sixes and Sevens

Church and Rooftops, Alcudia (Oil on canvas, work in progress)

I said I was at sixes and sevens. I started this at the Club last week, but forgot the camera, and then forgot to say anything about it anyway. Because I didn't have a photo of it, I was convinced I'd made a hash of it, but when I started on it again today, I found it quite to my liking. And today's progress has moved it into the comfort zone, so I'm relatively confident that it'll work out OK.

However, just to show that the sixes and sevens condition hasn't abated, I took this photo of the other one I started last week before doing any more work on it today. Although I did work on it, I then forgot to to photograph what I'd done. Blimey, I'll be glad when I'm back to normal.

I just love the one on the bottom. All that wonderful color, and the sky is to die for. Very nice indeed.

Hi Harry
Back in the swing I see. So much for recharging the batteries.
Nice work here..Not sure which I prefer..both are very good.

I have struggled with this "wall in the bottom/fore ground" bit in the past. This is very instructive to see how well you've handled this.

Also, the geometric patterns
are excellent.

Both are just wonderful. I am particularly intrigued with the top painting. That strong design of geometric shapes combined with those sophisticated colors creates a lively rhythm, I love it!

Thanks all. I hope you find the further work on these two pictures still to your liking.
